League of Women Voters of Utah

LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY:

Legislative advocacy is a cornerstone of the League of Women Voters. League advocacy is based on member study and agreement on selected issues and involves concerted efforts to achieve public policies consistent with League positions.  League advocacy promotes or opposes specific pieces of legislation. Read our 2017 LWV Utah Legislative Priorities for more information. We then use them to prioritize and track specific bills during the regular and interim sessions.
