Imagine having to read an entire casebook in just half a day…Well, Congress only had 13 hours to read the 1100 page stimulus bill.
“Readthebill.org is a commonsense solution – we want Congress to post all bills online for 72 hours before they are debated. That gives members of Congress – and you – three days to read legislation and consider how it could potentially affect each of us in our daily lives. A 72 hour rule would also give you a chance to let your senators and representative in Congress know what you like, or don’t like, about a bill before they vote.”
