Wyoming Republican Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso have introduced a bill that would require “each piece of legislation considered by the Senate be confined to a single issue,” according to a press release.
The legislation would “enact a standing order that creates a point of order against a bill or resolution that is not confined to a single issue.” This point of order “can only be overruled by a supermajority of 67 votes.”
Representative David Schweikert (R-AZ) has sponsored a similar bill in the House.
A note from POLITICO:
The single-issue legislation rule is common practice in many state legislatures, including the home states of Barasso, Enzi, and Schweikert. A bipartisan group of house members from Colorado — Reps. Doug Lamborn, Jared Polis, Cory Gardner and Scott Tipton — introduced a similar bill earlier this year based on their home state legislature that also has a single-issue rule.
