After many years of pressure from Common Cause Ohio, the ACLU of Ohio, and other good government groups, cameras will finally stream live during all Ohio Senate hearings. This is a significant victory for government transparency and accountability.


An update on legal protections left to us after the SCOTUS decision on partisan gerrymandering.

Some of us have been wondering what legal standards still apply following the SCOTUS failure to act on partisan gerrymandering in Rucho v. Common Cause and Lamone v. Benisek. Fortunately, Common Cause's Dan Vicuña put together some information for us!
