Action Alert: Did Your Representative Vote Correctly on Climate Change?
The House of Representatives made history by passing the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACES). The bill, passed by a close vote of 219-212, will be the first to curb the greenhouse gases that cause climate change and will help move our country into a clean energy economy. Find out how your Representative voted and contact your Representative about his/her vote. Read the League's press release on House passage of the bill. The LWVUS Lobby Corps was very active on the Hill and will continue its work in the weeks ahead. www.lwv.org
Critical Time for Health Care Reform Advocacy
As the House and Senate begin serious consideration of health care reform legislation, this is a critical time for state and local League presidents to contact local media in support of comprehensive health care reform, using this letter-to-the-editor. The letter calls on Congress to take action to pass real health care reform that guarantees quality, affordable health care to all U.S. residents and includes a government-administered health insurance plan like Medicare that would compete with private health insurance plans.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, has fought since 1920 to improve our systems of government and impact public policies through citizen education and advocacy. The League's enduring vitality and resonance comes from its unique decentralized structure.
The League of Women Voters is strictly nonpartisan; it neither supports nor opposes candidates for office at any level of government. At the same time, the League is wholeheartedly political and works to influence policy through advocacy. It is the original grassroots citizen network, directed by the consensus of its members nationwide.
All of our meetings are open to the public. We welcome you to membership in the Saginaw League of Women Voters if you are a voting age citizen. Come to our meetings, eMail our president [address at the bottom of this page], or click the Join the League button on the right side of this page.
