Model Legislature

SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 2010 – LANSING, MI

Every March, the Rochester Area Jaycees travel to Lansing to participate in the Michigan Jaycees Model Legislature project. In this project, we conduct a legislative session in the House Chamber of the Michigan State Capital. This year, the event is scheduled for Saturday, March 20th.

We will spend the day at the Capital learning about the legislative process through debate on actual bills currently before the legislature. You will have the opportunity to sit in the representatives’ chairs and elect your own party leaders. You’ll learn and practice parliamentary procedure and caucus as a party just like your elected officials.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to visit the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives. The Jaycees are one of only a few organizations permitted to conduct a mock legislature on the actual premises of the state capital. Be sure to invite your friends and family to join you in taking advantage of the exclusive privilege to experience the process that creates the laws that govern us every day. Space is limited, so sign up early.

Contact project chair Dan Hauser for further details, to sign up, and to make carpooling arrangements at irelandirishdan@yahoo.com or 586-703-4881.
