New Mexico Watchdog: On filibuster reform, Udall tells NM Watchdog, “We don’t want to shut down the process. We just want to make it work better.”

Since getting elected to the US Senate, one of Tom Udall‘s pet projects has been to change the filibuster rules he says clog things up on the Senate floor.

Sen. Udall’s wish may come true later this month but it even has some fellow Democrats worried.

Despite that, Udall told Capitol Report New Mexico he’s optimistic that the filibuster will be overhauled:

“I think we’ll have the votes to change the rules at the beginning of the Congress,” Udall said while in Santa Fe Monday afternoon (Jan. 7), adding that the Senate has become “a graveyard for good ideas.”
