Sandhya Bathija is the Campaign Manager for Legal Progress, and April Carson is the Deputy Director of Legal Progress at the Center for American Progress.

*Correction, January 2, 2014: The original version of this infographic contained five “Potential Roadblocks,” one of which read: “After a floor vote is scheduled, members of the Senate can filibuster, requiring a supermajority of 60 votes.” The current infographic reflects a recent U.S. Senate rules change that eliminated the fifth roadblock.
