Reforming Legislative Rules

The rules of the House and Senate govern how those chambers are run. Common Cause Rhode Island seeks rules that make the House and Senate more transparent, accountable and democratic.

Judicial Reform & Merit Selection

We've worked to establish an open system for merit selection of state judges.

Separation of Powers

Common Cause Rhode Island’s members played a crucial role in the historic 2004 vote that amended the state constitution.

Magistrate Reform

Magistrates are not covered by merit selection, so the appointment of magistrates has become a patronage system.
