The REFORM CAUCUS Standing Strong 21 House Democrats Working to Change House Rules

November 20, 2018

 

For Immediate Release                     

November 20, 2018


REFORM CAUCUS Standing Strong
21 House Democrats Working to Change House Rules  
 (Providence)- Twenty-one members of the Democrats in the House of Representatives are standing strong against the leadership of

Nicholas Mattiello for Speaker. 

 

The Reform Caucus is committed to changing the way business is conducted at the State House.  That can only happen with changes to the House Rules so there’s a more democratic process which respects all 74 elected Representatives and ensures the diverse needs of all constituents served.  The Reform Caucus seeks greater transparency in government such as not suspending rules and posting bills for 48 hours for the public (and Reps) to view before votes are taken.    

 

The House Rules are adopted in the first few days of the legislative session. Currently, House Rules give broad powers to the Speaker of the House in appointing committee members, committee chairs, and deciding the flow of bills and legislation in the House Chamber. This includes suspending the rules so bills are not required to be posted for the public 48 hours before a vote. The list of Democrats committed to reforming the State House in January is:  

 

Rep. Edith Ajello
Rep. Joseph Almeida
Rep. – Elect Laufton Ascencao
Rep. – Elect Justine Caldwell
Rep. Lauren Carson
Rep. – Elect Liana Cassar
Rep. – Elect Terri Cortvriend
Rep. Susan Donovan
Rep. Kathleen Fogarty
Rep. Art Handy
Rep. Raymond Hull
Rep. Katherine Kazarian
Rep. – Elect Rebecca Kislak
Rep. Jason Knight
Rep. John Lombardi
Rep. Carol Hagan McEntee
Rep. Mary Messier
Rep. Marcia Ranglin-Vassell
Rep. Deborah Ruggiero
Rep. Teresa Tanzi
Rep. Moira Walsh
