- Our government functions best and residents have the highest possible confidence in their representatives when the work of the legislature is fully transparent and easily accessible to the public.
- Our legislature works best when power is not concentrated in the hands of the few.
- The rules of the legislature should promote the open airing of issues and spirited debate on the future of the Commonwealth. Hearings on vital issues should be held and bills should come for an up and down vote, particularly when a majority of legislators (and the residents they represent) support them.
