Position Papers
Cleaning our beaches, coastline and rivers
State action is needed to upgrade our sewers, storm drains and wastewater treatment capability. The issue is simply too large for any ONE city -- or even for ALL the cities -- to handle.
Valuing our Families
We talk about "Family Values," but there are things that government can do RIGHT AWAY to VALUE OUR FAMILIES.
Extending Health Care security to seniors and kids
We are entering a "post-HMO" world, where the future of health care needs new definitions. We must make some big decisions, so that seniors and children are able to go to the doctor and have access to prescription drugs.
