Senate Rules Fight

As expected, the Senate this week refused to make any significant changes in the rules on the filibuster, but Senators did agree to clamp down on what are known as "secret holds."
The move caps years of effort by Senators in both parties to crack down on the practice of "anonymous" holds, where a Senator could delay action on a bill, but not have his or her identity revealed.

The change approved on Thursday would require that names be printed in the Congressional Record, to better identify who is holding up what bill.

  1. Hello. I noticed you want to read 10,000 novels. I write very unique novels at The Iraqi Solution would be of interest to you due to the fictional political nature of the novel. Hope to hear from you. Jay
