Demand Filibuster Reform

Overview

Demand Filibuster Reform

ASBC calls for the Senate to amend its filibuster rules to allow passage of federal voting rights legislation. In support of President Biden’s speech on voting rights and the fight to protect our democracy, ASBC also reaffirms its support for the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. The defiance of the legislative process in recent days by politicians elected to represent their constituencies to participate in the legislative process underscores the urgent need for S.1 passage.
