LWVUS consensus on Money in Politics. The LWVGR Campaign Finance Reform Committee will lead the LWVUS consensus on Money in Politics. Dinner will be provided and we are still firming up details as to location. The committee is reading and summarizing the study materials and they will be sent to you by the first weekend in January to review.

This consensus is extremely important. Money in politics has become extreme with much of it undisclosed. LWV must update its position in order to effectively advocate for good campaign finance laws that will help to protect the integrity of our elections and prevent undue influence on laws and governing.

Please put this date on your calendar and plan to attend.
