A conversation with
Senator Mike Lee joins Heritage’s Tommy Binion for a conversation on the Senate filibuster, its history, and what might happen if it is abolished.
The Senate has been described as the world’s greatest deliberative body, and unlike the House, was designed for extensive deliberation on important legislation. The filibuster has long been seen as a mechanism to incentivize the two parties to work together on polarizing issues. However, new threats to change Senate rules on the filibuster, or the right to extend debate, could fundamentally change how this key pillar of our government functions. Don’t miss Sen. Lee’s thoughts on this crucial debate.
