Making Democracy Work

LWV Position Statements

LWV Principles: The League believes that government policy, programs and performance must meet these criteria: competent personnel with clear responsibilities, coordination among agencies and levels of government, adequate financing, effective enforcement, and well-defined channels for citizen input and review.

League Positions are reached after research by a study committee, a written report for study by the membership of the League, discussion at small membership meetings (unit meetings), and agreement on principles by consensus of the membership.
