Our busy friends at the Sunlight Foundation have started a petition drive to demand that Congress post non-emergency bills for 72 hours prior to voting. This would allow both the public and Members of Congress time to read a bill before a vote.
Whether you’re a liberal outraged at the USA Patriot Act or a tax-cutting conservative outraged at the stimulus bill, you should be for getting Congress to STOP and READ what they’re doing to the nation.
If you agree, drop what you’re doing and visit www.readthebill.org and add your voice to the movement that asks nothing more than that important legislation gets read.
