EDITORIAL: Question #2, It is Time to Restore Ethics to the General Assembly

Sunday, November 06, 2016


The restoration of oversight by the Ethics Commission over the legislature is overdue and critical to our state’s future.

“In order for the Ethics Commission to have full oversight over members of the General Assembly, the state constitution has to be changed,” explains the group supporting the effort to pass the ballot item.

We agree. 

As a news organization, we work hard to hold elected leaders' proverbial feet to the fire, but in this case leaders like Nick Mattiello and Teresa Paiva Weed deserve credit for pushing the legislation forward. This may be one of the simpler considerations for Rhode Islanders and we hope all Rhode Islanders speak as one.

GoLocal strongly encourages voters to vote yes on Question #2.
