It shows more need…

It shows more need… for reform in the New York Senate.

The Green Party of New York says the “Coup” in the New York Senate shows need for reform in the state. It was in a news release dated Wednesday, June 10th.

The Green Party called for immediate overhaul of Legislative procedures and electoral reform. Greenwich Mayor David Doonan said in a news release, "Real reform would require… decrease (in) leadership power by allowing bills to come to a debate and vote without leadership approval - something that is commonplace in most parliaments around the world.”

Doonan proposed, “Pork and earmarks should be banned from bills and replaced with a state bank that provides low-interest loans to municipalities.” Doonan also pitched for public financing of elections.
