Rand Paul Seeks More Time for Bill Consideration

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced a resolution today “to change Senate rules to provide sufficient time for legislation to be read before being considered by the U.S. Senate,” according to a press release from his office.

The waiting period point of order would require all bills, amendments, and conference reports to be filed for one day for every 20 pages before it can be considered.

Senator Paul says this is done in keeping with his pledge “to increase transparency and accessibility in the U.S. Senate.”
