Squadron Weighs In On Rules

Capital Tonight

By Liz Benjamin

As the Senate Republicans prepare to take another crack at reforming the rules governing how the chamber is run, Sen. Dan Squadron sent a memo earlier today to his colleagues urging them to maintain the changes made following the ’09 coup and suggesting some additional changes.

Others, like reform of the member item process, have a better shot – if for no other reason than it’s unclear whether there will even BE member items this year, thanks to the $10 billion budget deficit. How hard could it be to overhaul the rules on something you’re not even going to get?
