2017 Priorities

LWVMO Legislative Priorities 2017

  • An electoral process that is fair, accurate, efficient, accessible, accountable and uniform. The League advocates changes to the voting process which encourage citizen participation and supports the present voter identification requirements protecting the integrity of the electoral process.
  • Tax policy providing financial stability and adequate funding for state services that relies on a balance of various forms of taxes and fees. Property, sales, and income taxes which increase in rate as the taxable amount increases provide stability and equity in tax policy.
  • Access to comprehensive, quality, affordable health care. The League urges the acceptance of Medicaid Expansion which will enhance the health of citizens and maintain the viability and stability of hospitals.
  • Retention of the non-partisan court plan for selecting judges that is a model adopted by many other states and protects the integrity of the judicial system.
