Something You Should Know:

League Sends Memo to U.S. Senate Regarding Healthcare  

The League sent a memo to members of the U.S. Senate regarding essential elements that need to be provided for any forthcoming legislation on healthcare. The League maintains that any legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act must include elements to cover preventive care, pre-existing conditions, support funding for Medicaid and must not discriminate against women.

League Joins Brennan Center on Public Records Requests

The League of Women Voters in Kansas, Maine, New Hampshire, and Alabama joined with the Brennan Center to request all communications and documents related to the Secretary of States in these states that may have discussed the activities of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The Secretaries of State have all been appointed to serve on the commission.

League Joins Letter to EPA Secretary Pruitt

The League expressed deep concern over the EPA's recently noticed process for evaluating existing regulations that can be "repealed, replaced, or modified". The letter was joined by environmental, public health and public safety groups from around the country.

League Opposes H.R. 806

The League urged Senators and Representatives to oppose H.R. 806 the "Ozone Standards Implementation Act". Despite its name, the legislation would systematically weaken the Clean Air Act without a single improvement, undermine Americans’ 46-year right to healthy air based on medical science, and delay life-saving health standards already years overdue.

League Opposes Expansion of Offshore Drilling

The League has joined with 132 organizations to state our opposition to the Trump Administration's plan for expansion of offshore drilling—which brings unacceptable risks to our oceans, coastal residents, communities, existing economies, and our climate.

League Health Care Discussion List Open

Challenges to the Affordable Care Act continue with an uncertain future and League efforts for health care reform are needed more than ever. What are the next steps for health care advocates? How can League members make an impact in their communities with education and action items? A Google Group for Health Care Reform is a national discussion and sharing group for League members on health care reform, including behavioral health. We welcome ideas, resources, successes and questions. To receive an invitation to join the group please contact Linda Hawkins or Linda Mahan.
