BOSTON – Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) announced that the 79th Citizens’ Legislative Seminar (CLS) will be held this fall on Tuesday, October 24th and Wednesday, October 25th 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, and the parliamentary role of the Clerk of the Senate.

“The Citizens’ Legislative Seminar is a unique learning experience that provides a first-hand opportunity to engage in the legislative process,” said Senator Moore. “I encourage residents of the Second Worcester District to participate in this program and to develop 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.

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, September 1, 2017 in order to be nominated by Senator Moore. Participation is on a first come, first served basis.
