LEGISLATIVE

The Legislative branch is the largest of the branches, with Representatives and Senators introducing legislation that they have researched and drafted themselves. These are bills that reflect the personal beliefs of the students and changes they want to see made on the state level. In the House of Representatives, the Speaker of the House chairs the general session and committee chairs oversee the committee activity at the beginning of the State Conference. In the Senate, the Lt. Governor chairs the general session and sets the docket of discussion. The students follow Robert's Rules for Parliamentary Procedure to encourage debate and ensure a fair discussion is held on every piece of legislation.

Once a piece of legislation is passed by the House and the Senate, the bill is passed along to the Governor for their pass or veto.
