The Legislature’s Public Access Room (PAR) will be presenting its “Your Voice” Presentation to demystify our state’s legislative process and teach citizens how they can have a say in which bills become law. You’ll learn about the legislative process, deadlines, and power dynamics at the Capitol, as well as gain tips and techniques on effective lobbying, testimony, and communicating with State Senators and Representatives.
