Jack De Coste of Plymouth participated in the 69th Citizens’ Legislative Seminar (CLS) on Monday, October 15
and Tuesday, October 16 at the State House.
“The Citizens’ Legislative Seminar gives constituents from the Plymouth and Barnstable District and across the Commonwealth a unique opportunity to learn about the legislative process, right on the Senate floor,” State Senator Therese Murray said.
“I’m going to reach out to people like myself who are senior citizens about this program,” De Coste said. “It’s never too late to continue the learning process, and to learn more about life in general, but especially about their government and how it operates.”
Established in 1976 through a collaborative effort of the Massachusetts Senate and the University. of Massachusetts, the two-day seminar features presentations by Senators and staff on aspects of the day-to-day experience of legislators in the Commonwealth. Topics include the history and process of the Legislature, the parliamentary role of the Clerk of the Senate and the future of the Legislature.
