LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS PBC
Environmental Team Meeting
February 23, 2017

The LWV is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government. League works to increase understanding on major policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Official League position statements are issued only by the President or designee. Action on issues should be done as an individual and not as a League member.
During this time of political change, how will we most effectively meet the environmental challenges.

Our issues:

  • Solar with co-ops kickoff in May
  • Fracking Ban Legislation in Committees (3)
  • SB 442 Dana Young
  • HB 441 Mike Miller
  • Water… keeping it clean and financingSB 10
