The 'Read the Bill Act' - Breitbart
That being said, I'd bet it never gets passed because it would take away elected officials' plausible "out" when laws turn our bad...
At Breitbart.com, U.S Rep. Jim Bridenstine writes about what is wrong and his idea to fix it:
"The public mistakenly thinks the Three Day Rule gives Members a minimum of 72 hours to review bills. House Leadership, however, often 'complies' by introducing controversial legislation late Tuesday night and holding votes Thursday morning. Even so, sometimes Leadership overrides the fake Three Day Rule by passing a so-called 'Martial Law' rule to allow same-day consideration of any bill. Only in Washington D.C. can politicians write a new rule to override another rule which they (temporarily) don’t want to follow."
