There are currently 48 Senators on board for Filibuster Reform. If you live in California, NEITHER of your senators have signed-off on amending the rules of the Senate so as to remove the '60 vote' threshold currently required to either open the debate with respect to a bill, or to cut off the debate and bring it to a vote.

If you believe in Filibuster Reform, please email Barbara Boxer and email Dianne Feinstein and let them know you want Filibuster Reform passed NOW. It only takes 50 votes (plus the V.P.) to reform that rule at the start of this congressional session (the matter is set for 1/22), but will take 67 votes to pass if done after that.

It is an indicator of how dysfunctional our government is when we have to demand reform of this sort. How many wasted people-hours does it take before congress decides to get to work?
