One Necessary Reform

Via John Cole at Balloon Juice, I wanted to recommend and pass along, a new effort to pass legislation mandating a 72-hour "sunshine period" between completion of a legislative bill and its passage by Congress. (Technically the House already has this rule but they consistently ignore it).

I fully support ReadtheBill's efforts. No more midnight meetings of Rules Committees and debate on the floor hours later before anyone's even seen what they're supposed to be voting on.

Excellent idea!! Of course, if it is ignored by Congress, it's useless!!! Maybe something with teeth in it will help eliminate some of the garbage that is coming forth now!!!
