The Post-Gazette's Jan. 29 editorial "No Reform" accurately describes filibuster abuse and the suggestions for its reform. Unfortunately, the weak changes that senators adopted last week do little to rectify the situation, which has left the federal courts with more than 70 and as many as 110 vacancies the last three years.
Thus, the Senate must redouble efforts to process the large number of nominees who have been languishing far too long because the courts need all of their judges to deliver justice.
