BOSTON – Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) announced that the 78th Citizens’ Legislative Seminar (CLS) will be held this spring on Tuesday, March 21st and Wednesday, March 22nd 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,” said Senator Moore.  “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 Senator Moore’s Office via telephone at (617) 722-1485 or online at no later than Friday, January 20, 2017 in order to be nominated by Senator Moore.  Participation is on a first come, first served basis.
