Tell the Senate to Fix the Filibuster

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Petition Statement

I want real filibuster reform that includes the talking filibuster. The filibuster should be used to increase debate, not silently obstruct legislation. End the silent filibuster and restore the Senate's role as a deliberative body by reforming the rules and implementing the talking filibuster.
There are currently 25,823 signatures. NEW goal - We need 30,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Over the next few days, the fate of filibuster reform hangs in the balance.

Let’s tell the leaders of the U.S. Senate that real reform includes a full talking filibuster.

Other proposals out there don’t go far enough, and won’t change the culture of obstruction that paralyzes the Senate.

Your grassroots support today is critical. Sign the petition: Tell the Senate to fix the filibuster.

~ Senator Jeff Merkley
