Moore announces 78th Citizens’ Legislative Seminar

State Sen. Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) recently announced that the 78th Citizens’ Legislative Seminar (CLS) will be held March 21-22 at the Massachusetts State House.

CLS is a citizen seminar 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, the parliamentary role of the Clerk of the Senate and the future of the Legislature.

“I encourage residents of the Second Worcester District to participate in this unique learning experience,” Moore said. “The program provides a first-hand opportunity to engage in the legislative process, and to get a better understanding of the work done by legislators and staff on Beacon Hill.”

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 in the Senate Chamber.

All residents of the Second Worcester District are invited to contact Moore’s office via telephone at 617-722-1485 or online at www.SenatorMikeMoore.com no later than Friday, Jan. 20, in order to be nominated by Moore. Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.
