The League chooses issues at the federal, state and local levels for its members to study. Through its consensus/concurrence process, the League examines all aspects of a selected subject and tries to reach agreement on which to base a position. The League's reputation for fairness rests on its practice of thorough and impartial study. Members discuss the issues; pros and cons are researched; and everyone has an opportunity to express an opinion. Once the League has a position on an issue, material is published to promote that position, always ensuring the distinction between League action on specific issues and the League’s nonpartisan voter information.
