Take Action

You have the power

We are focusing on procedural rules as the first path toward good governance in Pennsylvania. In other states, every bill is guaranteed a hearing in committee, or when a bill passes out of committee, it is guaranteed debate and a vote on the chamber floor.

As one person, you may feel your influence is limited in the effort to Fix Harrisburg. We know that when you talk to family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues about this dysfunction, our collective awareness keeps our State Representatives and Senators aligned with the will of the people.

What you can do

When government processes are complex or difficult to navigate, as the PA General Assembly is, residents begin to feel as if we don't have the power to push for changes beyond voting. However, that totally changes when more people understand the governance process, and how easy some aspects are to change.

Talking Points:

  • Support procedural rules that guarantee bipartisan solutions get a vote. Put PA back on the path to government of, by and for the people.

  • Avoid rules that allow a few partisan gatekeepers (committee chairs and majority leaders) complete say over what bills are given a vote.

  • Legislators from all parts of the state and across the political spectrum should have a meaningful role in deciding what bills are enacted.

  • Bills with strong bipartisan support should be given a vote in committee, and if voted out of committee they deserve a vote on the chamber floor.

  • If bills pass in one chamber with bipartisan support, the other chamber should respect that work with a corresponding vote.
