Our Positions are determined by League studies. The League, at the National, State or Local level, commits to studying an issue such as the electoral college (national), or Illinois charter schools (state) or home rule (local). Under the guidelines provided by the League, we study the issue from all angles and then the members arrive at consensus on the questions asked in the study. After the study is completed a committee writes a statement on our position. The position is voted upon by the membership; if accepted, it becomes part of our program and is something that we can advocate for as a League.
