Senator Therese Murray has announced that the 73rd Citizens’ Legislative Seminar (CLS) will be held this fall on Tuesday, October 14, and Wednesday, October 15, from 9:30 AM to 4 PM at the State House. CLS is a citizen seminar that aims to better educate the public on the commonwealth’s legislative process.
Established in 1976, this two-day seminar features presentations by senators and staff on aspects of the daily experience of the legislators.
Topics will include the history and process of the legislature. The CLS culminates with a simulated legislative hearing and senate session where participants are invited to use what they have learned in order to participate as “senators” in the legislative process.
All residents in the Plymouth and Barnstable District are invited to call Christopher Cochran at 617-722-1500 by Thursday, August 28, in order to be nominated by Senator Murray. Participation will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
