EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - This week on Newsmakers: What to do with the Ethics Commission? Following a Supreme Court decision this year that protects state legislators from much of the Ethics Commission bite, there is a move to change the state Constitution. Executive Director of Common Cause John Marion along with the President of Operation Clean Government Larry Valencia outline their plan to put the Ethics Commission back on the General Assembly map.

Then a march to promote less government is planned on Washington DC for September 12th. Local organizer Doreen Costa talks about the mission.
