CAFO Ordinance

Voice your support for an ordinance that will serve ALL Delaware County residents!

LWV UMRR Advocacy Update – and how you can get involved in comments to the proposed Clean Water Rule

 The dual mission of League of Women Voters – to educate voters and advocate on issues – is exemplified in the work of the LWV Upper Mississippi River Region.  We provide information on a variety of topics in this blog, through our newsletter, and in the educational meetings we co-sponsor with local Leagues.  And we advocate,  through taking and advocating for positions on key issues.  This post provides an update on work we are doing in three areas; the Farm Bill, the Clean Water Rule and  Foxconn.

LWV seeks to support non-operating owners of farmland
On December 3, 2018, LWV Upper Mississippi River Region held their bi-monthly Board meeting at the Coralville Public Library, in Johnson County, Iowa.   The educational event after the Board meeting featured speakers from the Woman, Food and Agriculture Network, and the Izaak Walton League.   These organizations, along with the LWV Upper Mississippi River Region, are reaching out to absentee landowners  – people who rent farmland for others to farm.
