Chautauqua County Legislature

What We Do

  • We discuss and study issues of local, national, state and regional concern.
  • We inform ourselves, legislators and the general public about the results of our research.
  • We lobby for passage of laws we support and for the defeat of those we oppose, based on League positions.
  • We monitor elections and government activities.

Did You Know?

League members worked successfully for enactment of the Social Security and Food and Drug Acts, as well as the TVA. In 1934, when federal and state government agencies were hiring thousands of employees to administer the new social and eco-nomic laws, the League launched a nationwide campaign in support of the merit system for selecting government personnel. In those years the League was the only national organization acting consistently for the merit system. And due, at least in part, to League efforts, legislation passed in 1938 and 1940 removed hundreds of federal jobs from the spoils system and placed them under Civil Service.
