The only multi-issue, statewide independent political
organization in Illinois, IVI-IPO has led the progressive good
government movement here for over 50 years.
Through our National Affairs, Legislative Action and Community
Action committees, IVI-IPO drafts legislative proposals and
lobbies for passage of progressive legislation in Congress,
the Illinois General Assembly, the Chicago City Council, and
other governmental bodies.
IVI-IPO's positions on issues are the basis of the annual
Best Legislative and Best Aldermanic Voting Record Awards.
The following are examples of the issues and legislation favored
by the IVI-IPO.
