Arizona Pushes Plan for Constitutional Chaos

March 28, 2017; Blog Post, Status Update

Thanks to the Arizona legislature, we’re getting perilously close to a constitutional disaster. Copper State lawmakers this week made Arizona the 29th state to call for a new constitutional convention to pass an amendment requiring the federal budget to be balanced.

In Opposition to Sessions Nomination, Common Cause Activists Deliver Petitions to Senate Offices from Alaska to Florida

January 24, 2017; Press Release, Status Update

Today, Common Cause activists in a dozen states are delivering petitions urging their U.S. Senators to vote against the nomination of Sen. Jefferson Beauregard “Jeff” Sessions III (R-AL) to serve as U.S. Attorney General. For decades, Sen. Sessions has been an outspoken critic of the Voting Rights Act, one of the nation’s most critical pieces of civil and voting rights legislation, which paved the way for an inclusive democracy. As Attorney General, Sessions would be charged with deciding how and when to enforce the Voting Rights Act, which he has repeatedly condemned as an “intrusive piece of legislation.” The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote today to send the nomination forward to a vote of the full Senate in the coming weeks.

DE_021011_Report_Open_Delaware_2.pdf

February 10, 2011

This Common Cause Delaware report reads, in part, 'Delaware's laws regulating lobbyists are weak compared to other states, and requiring greater disclosure of lobbyists activities is especially important in the post-Citizens United era, when many of their clients are now free to make unlimited political expenditures. Unlike many states, Delaware does not require lobbyists to report their salaries or the specific bills on which they have been working. Nor does Delaware have a revolving door law that requires former legislators to wait for a certain period before becoming paid lobbyists.'
