LWVS-KC Studies

League studies are produced by volunteers who research timely issues and write a report on their findings to share with the rest of the membership as well as the public. Study topics are voted on by the membership at the Annual Meeting held every May. Local and State League studies available online are listed below. Copies of studies written prior to 2000 are available at the League office.
