Rep. Brian Baird introduces reform resolution

Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA) at a Capitol press conference lifting a bill that Congress passed without reading. (ReadtheBill.org’s DeGennaro to his side.)

Congressman Baird is the leading voice in Congress for reading the bills. He reintroduced his “72 hours online” resolution June 20, 2007. With its bipartisan group of cosponsors, this practical, non-ideological reform would require bills to be made publicly available on the Internet for 72 hours before floor debate began.
