FYI Reading

The LWVRI receives a great deal of interesting information from LWVUS sponsored listservs and other organizations for various reasons. We will be sharing as much of the information as possible on this page. The League does not guarantee that the materials will cover all points of view or all issues involved, and the League does NOT necessarily have a position or endorse the positions of the organizations who have prepared the materials. This material only reflects what people are talking about, it is FYI (for your information) only.
