Media Advisory – Brubaker to Host Student Government Seminar for Lancaster County Students

HARRISBURG – Senator Mike Brubaker (R-36) will host his annual Student Government Seminar at the Mount Joy campus of the Lancaster County Career and Technology Center (LCCTC) on Thursday, March 6, 2014 featuring a mock General Assembly with students serving as “Senators for a Day.”

Approximately 55 high school students from seven schools throughout the 36th Senatorial District will get a glimpse of the functions of state government and how it reacts to public policy issues during the seminar.  The event will also feature participants from state government as well as special interest groups.

The seminar’s format will allow students to serve as legislators and be divided into Senate committees to discuss bills, take positions on legislation, and actually draft laws for the full Senate to consider.  During the afternoon, the Senate will meet to debate and vote on legislation drafted by the following committees: finance, judiciary, and public health and welfare.

Registration for participants begins at 8:00 a.m. in the cafeteria of LCCTC.
