        Branch’s Legislative Achievements

 Our branch had a critical role in establishing a county-wide library system including books-by-mail, getting the state-wide kindergarten bill passed, and getting the Inheritance Tax Bill passed granting equity to unemployed wives. We now work with coalition members on women’s issues in the state legislature to pass bills of common interest.

 Annually, we support National’s AAUW scholarship programs . In conjunction with other branches we plan to send a student to the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) held in Washington, DC. in 2013.
