State ethics forum canceled

We have abandoned plans for a public forum on ethics reform because we could not get agreement on a date that most of the delegation could attend, in a reasonable time for the activity to have an effect. A vote on the measure is expected soon.

Agriculture study

LWV is considering revising its national position on agriculture, and local league members will participate. We began with the Nov. 18 membership meeting. The national study questions are now available at: http://www.lwv.org/member-resources/agriculture-update

Youth Voter Registration

We have received a $500 grant to conduct youth voter registration this spring. This is a bit more intense than the normal registration in the high schools that we do every year. We need more people to help, but probably only a few hours of your time are needed, so if this is an activity you like, please let the webmaster or team leaders know.
