Bond Bills and Budgets and Hearings – Oh My!

AnnapolisStateHouseMACo’s Half-Day Annapolis Immersion Training on November 7, 2016 will help you navigate the Maryland General Assembly Session.

There are still a few seats left, but they’re going quickly.

Learn the basics – where to park, how to sign-up to testify, where to go for lunch.

And the very complex – how a bill is heard, what a bond bill is/how it affects the budget, the most effective way to testify.

Included in this FREE training:

  • Overview of the General Assembly Session and the Legislative Process
  • What is MACo and its Role in the Legislative Process?
  • The Fiscal Note Process
  • The Bond Bill and Budget Hearing Process
  • Tips on Testifying
  • Tour of the State Capitol, Senate, and House Buildings

These topics will be covered by MACo staff, experts from the Department of Legislative Services, and appropriate staff members from House or Senate Committees.
