Common Cause/NY Applauds Assembly Judiciary Committee Vote to Repeal Constitutional Convention

"Common Cause/NY applauds the Assembly Judiciary Committee for passing the resolution that will repeal an centuries-old call for a federal constitutional convention. Extremists want to hold a constitutional convention because they want to curtail the federal government and roll back civil, labor, reproductive, and educational rights. Today's vote is one step closer to making sure that doesn't happen."


Common Cause/NY: When State Contracts are Overly Broad New Yorkers Suffer

"Overly broad contracts, like the ones with Deloitte and Boston Consulting Group for both the State of the State and now the Excelsior Pass, allow the state to spend large amounts of taxpayer dollars on dubious projects. New Yorkers should know exactly how their money is being spent and the value they're getting for it – especially on work that is historically the purview of public sector employees, not profit-driven private sector firms."


Common Cause/NY Statement on Percoco Ruling

"The Supreme Court's ruling on the Percoco case sets a terrible precedent that corruption is OK and that bad actors won't be held accountable for misusing public assets for personal gain. The every day New Yorker knows and sees that as corrupt. Our laws should too."


Common Cause/NY Calls For Justice for Jordan Neely

"Equal application of the law is a fundamental tenet of democracy, one that District Attorney Bragg has exemplified. We urge the D.A. to make no exception now in the case of Jordan Neely – a confirmed homicide by the coroner – and arrest and charge Penny accordingly. We call on our elected officials to condemn citizens taking the law into their own hands."


Common Cause/NY Statement on Rep. Santos Indictment

"Mr. Santos' breathtaking scope of lies has left his constituents -- and all New Yorkers -- gasping for air and calling for accountability. Now that the Eastern District of New York has appropriately indicted him, Mr. Santos should resign. It's been clear for a long time that the voters have been defrauded, and Mr. Santos' seat in Congress is tantamount to an ill gotten gain: he should not be allowed to profit from the fruits of his deception. Voters deserve a representative who doesn't lie and deceive their way into power, and unfortunately they have waited too long for Mr. Santos to do the right thing and resign."


Lawmakers, Let NY Vote Push for Votings Rights Package in Remaining Days of Session

"Lawmakers have an historic opportunity to pass legislation that will directly impact voters' lives. From expanding absentee voting to allowing food and water on voting lines, New York has a real chance to lead and protect voters. We look forward to working with lawmakers to get these bills passed, and then with the Board of Elections to implement these long overdue reforms in time for the critical 2024 elections."
