Durbin Says Filibuster Reform Should Be Revived

Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin (D-IL) signaled "it may already be time to reopen the debate about the chamber's rules, given Republicans have attempted to or plan to filibuster three presidential appointments in the month and a half since the chamber approved modest filibuster changes," Roll Call reports.

Meanwhile, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) launched a filibuster of John Brennan's nomination to head the CIA: "I will speak until I can no longer speak."
