0:43 - "Ultimately, we passed a bipartisan package that I hope will make us more productive. I’ll be tracking the results and how we proceed. And moving forward, I’ll continue to fight for the reforms we need to make the Senate a more accountable institution. We've made progress, but I'm not done working to change the way we do business in Washington."
