The sources set out below can guide you in engagement through letter writing, lobbying and providing testimony on bills under committee consideration during the period when the General Assembly is in session.

League of Women Voters Missouri Legislative Bulletin

Perhaps the most important source is the weekly LWVMO Legislative Bulletin, which is published every Sunday evening and emailed to every league member in the state. You receive this in your email by virtue of your League membership and it is comprehensive, containing not only timely information but also specific Calls to Action. These Bulletins can also be found at https://my.lwv.org/missouri/resources/legislative-bulletins-alerts

 

There are also several organizations in Missouri that share LWV held positions, and which prepare timely legislative updates during the MO Legislative session.  These reports contain information such as

  • bill summaries,

  • the League’s (or sponsoring organization’s) position (opposed/support, and why),

  • dates of upcoming legislative committee hearings,

  • links to house committee hearings (for which written testimony can be submitted online)

  • links to the members of the committees who need to be contacted about a particular bill.
