The Results of Our Studies, The Basis for Our Action
A very wise Leaguer once said: “Study without action is futile; action without study is fatal.”
This guide is designed to give LWVMD leaders the full text of our public policy positions, background on the studies that led to them, and the action resulting from them. The underlined statements are summary statements that give an overview of the position. LWVMD will use these positions, as needed, to impact decisions made by various state level policy and law making bodies. Positions are available for use at the local level too, so look through them and remember this guide as a resource when you’re looking for a basis for action. The guide also includes the procedures to be used by Local Leagues in considering when and how to take action, information on LWVMD action in relationship to LWVUS positions and principles, and new program items adopted by delegates to the 2011 Convention.
