In response to the news that the House Democratic Caucus finally made their rules public after public interest groups, including Issue One, pushed for more than a year for their release, Issue One Executive Director Meredith McGehee released the following statement:
“The House Democratic Caucus made an important commitment this week to accountability by agreeing to this reasonable request, joining their colleagues in the Republican Conference whose rules were already available online.
“These rules help show where a party’s priorities are and how it intends to govern. As such, it’s critical they always be made available to the public.
“We thank Demand Progress for their leadership and sustained effort in organizing a broad array of groups to make this important information public.”
