The Monkey Cage asks
Before 1 January 2018, will the U.S. Senate expand the scope of matters for which a filibuster cannot be used?
In April 2017, Senate Republicans eliminated the filibuster for the confirmation of Justices of the Supreme Court by changing the rules so that debate on nominees could be ended with a simple majority vote rather than a three-fifths majority (Reuters). The removal of the filibuster to block legislation may be next (NY Times).
The U.S. Senate did not expand the scope of matters for which a filibuster cannot be used. This question closed as "no" with an end date of 1 January 2018.
