A coalition of progressive groups are upping the pressure on Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to nix the 60-vote legislative filibuster after Republicans were able to successfully block a bill using the procedure for the first time this year.

More than 100 groups sent a letter on Thursday to Schumer arguing that in the wake of GOP senators blocking a bill to create a commission to probe the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, “it is clearer than ever that the filibuster needs to be eliminated.”

McConnell can use to block efforts to defend and strengthen our democracy and make our government work for the American people,” the groups added in the letter, which was spearheaded by Fix Our Senate.
