    Senate Filibuster Rules

    Norman Ornstein discussed the historical use of the Senate filibuster, the proposed changes to the rule, and the potential effects of changes to Senate procedure. He also responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.
    At the time of the program, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was seeking changes to filibuster rules in the 113th Congress. The procedure allows a single member of Congress to extend debate with the intent to delay or prevent a vote on a proposal. In the Senate the only way to end a filibuster is through a cloture vote, which requires 60 votes rather than a simple majority. Since 2007, the Senate minority party had forced the majority to attempt to break a filibuster over 380 times, more than doubling recent historical annual averages.
