Sen. Wyden (D-OR) is currently filibustering in the Senate, trying to get a vote on an amendment he is proposing to eliminate royalty relief for oil companies when the price of oil is above $50 a barrel. From the comments at dailykos his staff says he has been doing this since 10 am (EST) and it is unknown how long he plans to continue. He is currently taking questions from his co-sponsor Sen Kyl (R-AZ).
