New York State Common Cause (NYSCC), a state chapter of Common Cause, was founded in 1973 as a grassroots organization to promote an open and accountable legislative process. NYSCC advocates the participation of all members of society in the government process as a means to ensure that lawmakers will be responsible for their legislative decisions. To achieve its goals, NYSCC actively lobbies for and against legislation at the state level.

The function of the Executive Committee is to develop policy, but the Governing Board must approve these recommendations before these become the actual policy of NYSCC. The Executive Director, who is the public representative of NYSCC, is accountable to the Governing Board and implements policies approved by the Board. The Chairman of the Board, an unpaid member elected to this post, is the chief officer of NYSCC. With the exception of the director and some office help, NYSCC is staffed by volunteers whose major duties are to lobby legislators. NYSCC also manages an internship program which uses volunteers to generate reports, perform surveys, carry on a dialogue with lawmakers, and generally to perform the duties of a staff member.

In 1988, after having maintained two offices, one in New York City and a head office in Albany, NYSCC closed its Albany office and moved all operations to New York City, the center of its financial and volunteer support.

The records of New York State Common Cause span the years 1972 through 1987. Since NYSCC is an organization that campaigns for accountability in government, its records would be of interest to researchers of campaigns against political action committees (PACs), 1980-86; election reform, 1977-83; civil service reform, 1978-80; and accountability issues such as Sunset Law reform, 1976-78.

A major issue of concern to NYSCC has been the contribution political action committees make to election campaigns. Studies conducted by NYSCC determined the amount of money donated to individual candidates by PACs. Another important issue documented in the records of NYSCC are several reports on the inequality of the electoral campaign system, specifically on the advantage that incumbent candidates hold in most elections.

As an early advocate and, later, as a prominent member of the New York Temporary State Commission on Lobbying, NYSCC retained ample documentation of that body, including minutes, correspondence and the records of legal challenges to the commission such as "Hobday, et al., v. the New York Temporary State Commission on Regulation of Lobbying." Other records relating to lobbying in New York State include an analysis of how agencies retained agency logs (registers of lobbyists who have approached state agencies), lobbying registration forms that NYSCCC filed with the state, and studies by NYSCC on the money spent on lobbying by business interests.

Of particular note for researchers should be the interviews with politicians contained in the OUTS (Open Up the System) surveys that NYSCC conducted from 1976 to 1980 on such issues as legislative reform, PAC regulation, lobbying reform, conflict of interest in the legislature, and the public financing of campaigns. Politicians surveyed include such prominent individuals as Senator Warren Anderson. The OUTS Surveys reveal the positions of senators and assembly persons on specific bills before the legislature as well as their attitudes toward the wider issues concerning the access to and structure of government.
