THIS WEEK: Meeting of DNC Rules and Bylaws, Executive Committees
WASHINGTON—Friday, June 8, the Democratic National Committee’s Rules and Bylaws Committee will meet in Providence, RI. During the event, RBC members will continue to review the Unity Reform Commission report and begin review of the proposed draft Call for the 2020 Democratic Convention.
On Saturday, June 9, the DNC’s Executive Committee will meet to consider regular party business.
At the DNC’s March meeting, the full DNC took the step of advancing the most significant reforms to the party’s presidential nominating process in decades. DNC members voted to accept the Rules and Bylaws Committee report, which calls for reducing the influence of unpledged delegates (commonly known as ‘superdelegates’) in the presidential nominating process, expanding the use of primaries, taking steps to protect the right to vote, making our caucuses more accessible, increasing transparency in our party, and expanding grassroots participation. These reforms will continue to make our party more competitive in every ZIP code in 2018 and beyond.
The Rules and Bylaws Committee received the recommendations of the Unity Reform Commission in December and has through June 2018 to complete its work, which includes the crafting of any rules, bylaws, or charter amendments necessary to implement these recommendations. These recommendations will then go to the full DNC for consideration at the summer meeting.
These meetings are open to the public. Those interested in attending can RSVP here.
