Transparency: For the People

Common Cause President Karen Hobert Flynn opens her testimony by declaring that democracy reform is a winning issue in America and one that transcends the partisan divide. She explains that for the second election in a row, voters across the country resoundingly rejected the status quo in 2018, passing 95% of democracy reform measures at the state and local level. Pointing to the unprecedented corruption in the executive branch and the outsized influence of billionaires and special interest groups, Ms. Hobert Flynn calls for bold ethics and transparency reforms like those she has championed and helped to enact for decades.
