I Don’t Know or Representative Hasn’t Decided Yet on 72 Hour Rule

Please let Representative DeFazio know that the 72 Hour Rule is a simple solution that will give legislators and people like me the chance to read and understand bills before Congress begins debating them. Posting bills online 72 hours before consideration means that a lot of wasteful spending and last minute provisions will be avoided.
