Legislative Priorities for 2014

boardroom tableThe LWVUS Board at its February meeting established the following as Legislative Priorities for 2014:

  • Money in Politics
  • Voting Rights

In addition, the following were included as a second tier of focus for 2014:

  • Affordable Care Act
  • Reproductive Choice
  • Immigration and the Environment.

Other issues, third tier (watch) such as Fiscal Policy/Social and Economic Justice and Gun Safety 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 second session of 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.
