October 7, 2016

As the 2016 legislative year comes to a close, we are delighted to report a number of victories—and a few areas where further work is needed.

Government

Among the LWVC successes in our Government program areas were significant bills affecting money in politics, voting rights, and redistricting.

Public Statement
Yes on Prop 68 image of parks

California must lead the way. Our state is feeling the effects of climate change—from severe droughts to devastating wildfires — yet our federal government is refusing to act. We are proud to support Yes on 68 as it takes a smart and efficient approach to protecting California’s natural resources. Proposition 68 will invest $4 billion in securing our state’s water supplies and ensuring every Californian has access to clean drinking water and safe, quality parks.
