Reform Groups Propose Constitutional Convention Reforms

Casey Seiler reports in the Times Union “good government advocates have recommendations for how a state constitutional convention should be organized, and they’re pushing for lawmakers and Gov. Andrew Cuomo to take action well before November 2017, when New Yorkers will get their once-every-20-years ballot opportunity to call for such a convention.

Blair Horner of the New York Public Interest Research Group and Barb Bartoletti of the state League of Women Voters spoke at a Tuesday news conference on behalf of a coalition that also includes Citizens Union, Common Cause, the Brennan Center for Justice, Wagner College and Reinvent Albany.”
