Brennan Center Memo to Senate Dems

For those wondering about our reaction to the Senate Democrats' current proposal to change the Senate's rules, here is a memo from the Brennan Center, Common Cause, the Empire Center and NYPIRG, sent to the Senate Democrats this morning. Shorter version: we appreciate the (small first) steps you are taking; we wish you would do more now; at the very least, we'd like to see more transparency in the chamber required immediately; we're hopeful that the "temporary committee" you've set up to examine rules will -- as you promise -- make bigger, needed changes, and we will work with you to make that happen; the sooner this bigger change happens, the better for all New Yorkers.
