Dear Local League Presidents,

At the 2017 state convention delegates passed a motion to conduct an updated study of Section 1. B of the LWVMI Agricultural/Seasonal Worker Position. Subsequently, the state Board voted to use the concurrence process to decide whether there was consensus on the concurrence and requested that the LWV Leelanau County provide appropriate background information and pros and cons for the proposed revision to the state Board.

On December 2, 2017, the LWVMI Board approved the attached materials for distribution to local Leagues.

The task of the local Leagues is to review the materials and decide whether to concur with the proposed revision. As there is only one question the deadline set by the LWVMI Board is April 1, 2018. The LWVMI Board will then decide whether there was consensus on the proposed concurrence.

Please send responses to Marian Kromkowski, LWVMI Vice-President for Program no later than April 1, 2018.

The response is to the following question:
1. A person should be allowed to apply for or secure and renew a driver's license or obtain an identification card regardless of immigration status.

Agree Disagree No Consensus

OPTIONAL COMMENTS (250 word limit):

Please let us know if you have questions or need assistance.

Thank you,
Judy Karandjeff, LWVMI President
Marian Kromkowski, LWVMI Vice President for Program
