RE: H.R. 1316, Repeal of Campaign Finance Limitations

The League of Women Voters strongly urges you to oppose H.R. 1316. The legislation, reported by the House Administration Committee, is a dangerous retreat to the days of huge special interest contributions to office holders, candidates and the political parties.

RE: Support H.R. 1526, the SAFE Act

The League of Women Voters believes that basic civil liberties must be preserved and protected as the nation seeks to guard against terrorism and other threats to national security. We therefore ask that you support and cosponsor H.R. 1526, the SAFE Act (Security and Freedom Ensured Act of 2005).
