More Democracy Reforms

You hear it all the time, from voices across the political spectrum: Government is broken.

Democracies aren't naturally efficient, but history tells us that ours can work if we work at it. Common Cause is doing just that. In Washington, we're working to overturn the U.S. Senate's filibuster rule, which requires a supermajority -- 60 votes -- to conduct even routine business. We've also taken on ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, a lobby that masquerades as a charity and enjoys an illegal tax exemption as it brings state legislators together for private meetings and law-writing sessions at posh resorts.

And across the country, our state chapters are pushing strong lobbying laws, open meetings requirements and other common sense steps to clear sand out of the gears of government.
