President's Message: League Explores Social Issues
In the following pages, League looks at "Contract with America," the incoming House Republicans' new legislative agenda.
Becky Cain, LWV/US president, in the December issue of Report From the Hill, stated: "The League of Women Voters believes that scaling back government this drastically is not in the best interest of citizens. Government at its best is citizens coming together to resolve national problems.
"What we need is to restore people's faith in government. We have to make government work more efficiently, more effectively and be more responsive to the citizens. But government is not the enemy."
Dr. Patrick deLeon, administrative assistant to Sen. Daniel Inouye, will be in the League office on Friday, March 3rd, for a discussion of the Contract and the future of health care legislation.
February and March will be busy months for all Leaguers. In addition to special events, such as the discussion on violence with Judge Michael Town and Prosecuting Attorney Keith Kaneshiro described on page seven, we will conduct several vote counts. Please check the calendar and plan to participate in your League activities.
