The LWVUS Board established the following as Legislative Priorities for 2013:
Money in Politics and the many facets of Election Reform.
In addition, the following were included as a second tier of focus for 2013:
Climate Change, Gun Safety and Immigration.
Other issues, such as Health Care Defense and Budget/Taxes may be acted on as opportunities arise for League action, if they do not interfere with action on an LWVUS priority, and it appears the LWVUS can make an impact.
The Board considered many issues and the responses from League members suggesting Legislative Priorities. The decisions were based on what issues are likely to come before the 113th Congress, the opportunities to make an impact, program decisions made by members at the last Convention, member interest, and resources available to manage these priorities effectively. The Board reviews these priorities throughout the year, making changes if necessary. To Learn more go to the LWVUS website.
