More green groups are putting their weight behind an effort to change the Senate's filibuster rules.

Friends of the Earth, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the League of Conservation Voters, Clean Water Action and Greenpeace signed onto a Monday letter to Democratic leaders calling for changes to the upper chamber's rules, joining the Sierra Club, unions and social justice groups as members of the "Fix the Senate Now" campaign.

Green groups hope changes to Senate rules could make it easier to push clean energy and climate change-related bills through the chamber.
