Making Democracy Work

Studies: LWV-MC, LWV-VA


The Montgomery County League has approved a study on the funding of government responsibilities in Montgomery County. A study of the Freedom of Information Act was completed in 2014. Local members may participate in a new statewide study of the impact of fracking in Virginia.


"Studies" form the foundation for the League's "Program." "Program" refers to those governmental issues that the League considers important enough to warrant taking action. "Studies" are also an important tool for educating both members and the public on particular issues that are of interest to League. See a fuller discussion of studies.
