President Biden calls for change to filibuster

During a visit on Tuesday to Atlanta, Presiden Biden called for a change in Senate rules on the filibuster to allow Democrats to pass a so-called voting rights bill. The President and Vice President Harris traveled to Georgia for a series of events to promote legislation designed to safeguard voting rights in an era when some states are taking action to make it tougher to cast a ballot.

During remarks at Clark Atlanta University and Morehouse College, Biden marked the recent one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Georgia was one of the first states to pass laws to combat voter fraud after the 2020 presidential election, in which Biden carried the state.
