First CSfC Campaign Ends in Major Victory!

Strong Ethics Reform to Be Signed

Our first campaign ended yesterday with an ethics reform bill that, while not perfect, is a major advance on current law--and is a critical first step in restoring public confidence. The legislature passed a sweeping reform package and Governor Deval Patrick, who proposed the original version of this bill, said he will sign it. We are grateful for our members who attended a house meeting on ethics reform on March 8, participated in our first issue survey in late March, lobbied our local legislators in April and May, and lobbied the legislative leadership and conference committee members in May and June. The law that will be signed in the next week is better--thanks to many hands--than the version passed by either the House or Senate.
