End Senate obstruction: pass common-sense rules reforms!

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Petition Statement

It's time for the Senate to pass a common-sense package of rules reforms. Please co-sponsor Senate Resolution 4, which would make meaningful Senate rules changes, including requiring Senators to speak on the floor if they wish to filibuster, increasing public accountability.
There are currently 3,563 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Something is broken in Congress. The filibuster has been distorted into a weapon in a partisan war, effectively making legislative progress impossible, imperiling essential policies supported by the American people, and blocking vitally important judicial nominations. As the fiscal cliff negotiations made clear, Washington is deeply divided. The Senate needs to reform its rules in order to ensure that these divisions do not jeopardize the progress we need to make on jobs, climate change, immigration, and more.

It's time for the Senate to pass common-sense rules reforms to end routine obstruction and ensure that the Senate will once again be able to address the critical issues facing our country.
