  • Have you ever wondered what the appropriate protocols are for testifying before a committee?

  • Do you know how a policy committee and a budget committee differ?

The training will be held on Wednesday, November 9, beginning at 10 am in the MACo Office. Morning discussions will focus on the legislative process, MACo’s bill review and hearing process, and the fiscal note process.

A short guided walking tour highlights some of the historical and practical areas of interest within the government complex. Afternoon discussions will be held in a committee room and focus on budget and bill hearing protocols and tips on testifying. The training agenda is available by clicking here.
