BOSTON – Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) announced that the 80th Citizens' Legislative Seminar (CLS) will be held next spring on Tuesday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 28th at the Massachusetts State House.
CLS is a program that aims to better educate the public on the Commonwealth’s legislative process. Established in 1976 through a collaborative effort of the Massachusetts Senate and the University of Massachusetts, this two-day seminar features presentations by Senators and staff on aspects of the day-to-day experience of legislators in the Commonwealth. Topics will include the history and process of the Legislature, and the parliamentary role of the Clerk of the Senate.
“This program provides an exciting opportunity for residents to gain a firsthand perspective about what it’s like to serve in the Senate,” said Senator Moore. “Participants debate legislation and meet with Senators and staff to learn more about the legislative process and day-to-day life on Beacon Hill. Past participants from our area have found the program to be both informative and enjoyable.”
The CLS culminates in a simulated legislative hearing and Senate session where participants are invited to use what they have learned and participate as “Senators” in a live debate.
All residents of the Second Worcester District are invited to contact Senator Moore’s Office via telephone at (617) 722-1485 or online at www.SenatorMikeMoore.com no later than Friday, January 5, 2018 in order to be nominated by Senator Moore. Participation is on a first come, first served basis.
The Second Worcester District includes the Towns of Auburn, Grafton, Leicester, Millbury, Shrewsbury, Precincts 2 and 4 in Northbridge, Upton, and Wards 5-7 and Precincts 1 and 5 in Ward 8 of the City of Worcester.
