A new year and new hope for Georgia

CCGA’s Resolutions for 2012

  1. Convince the General Assembly to allocate more funding to the State Ethics Commission and give them back their authority.
  2. Impost a lobbyist gift cap of $100 and prevent government officials from becoming lobbyist shortly after leaving office.
  3. End the pay-to-play system of institutional bribery at the state level.
  4. Overhaul the open records laws to address loopholes.
  5. Reform the campaign finance laws so that the voices of citizens are not drowned out by big donors.
  6. Persuade the General Assembly to pass SR 263, which will implement an independent redistricting commission.
  7. Give more citizens opportunities to run for office by making it easier for third party and independent candidates to run.
  8. Encourage the formation of local government ethics boards and support those already in existence.
  9. Pass legislation that allows for more local elected offices to be non-partisan.
  10. Ensure that taxpayer money is being used in the best interest of citizens and not abused by governments.
  11. Change judicial financing laws so that campaign funds are not excessive and donations don’t come with strings attached.
