-- FOLLOW-UP on the Money in Politics Study --

Our "Money in Politics Study" has been completed. Our consensus has been reached. The committee has finally written their report and sent it on up to LWVUS to be included with all the others in order for the US League to agree (hopefully) on a position that we can all work for in the coming months.

We wish to thank everyone who has worked so hard in the last many months on this project, especially Suzanne Hain who has chaired the committee with such wonderful energy and enthusiasm. We've all learned so much and are anxiously awaiting the US League's analysis of all the data from leagues all over the country. Thanks to everyone who participated!!

Our Mission Statement: The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

The League is strictly nonpartisan; it neither supports nor opposes candidates for office at any level of government. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy.
