Good Government Roundtable. In January the Bucks County LWV will host a Roundtable Discussion at which members and their guests will have a chance to discuss and debate a variety of topics impacting Good Government in the United States today. These issues include term limits, initiative and referendum, and campaign finance reform in a post-Citizens United world. Members of the Program Committee will explain the process by which the League reaches positions, what our past positions on the chosen topics have been, and recent developments which are relevant to the issues.

This is a chance for League members to do what we enjoy most: discuss important current issues with other well informed voters and learn from each other.
