WASHINGTON, D.C. - Missouri Senator Roy Blunt released the following statement Thursday in response to the Senate rules changes:

"While my preference was that we did not change the Senate rules, we successfully stopped the so-called ‘nuclear option' from going into effect. This solution is manageable and will preserve the minority party's ability to debate any bill."

Last month, Senator Blunt and his colleagues launched a website called "Stop The Nuclear Option" as part of their successful efforts to stop more aggressive rules changes.
