open meeting

MBA, 20 West St., Boston

Senate Counsel Alice Moore and Administration and Finance Counsel David Sullivan will discuss the legislative process and how public attorneys can effectively interact with counsel at the state house. Attorneys Moore and Sullivan will review the "mysteries" of the legislative and executive branches as to how a bill advances on the hill, from filing to committee assignment, committee hearings, votes by the two branches of the legislature, reconciliation, final passage and approval by the governor. They will give pointers on pitfalls to avoid when drafting legislation, effective presentations to legislative committees, and how to assist your clients in the legislative process. They will also review the procedures and pitfalls for requesting special legislation for cities and towns, and discuss policies and executive orders that affect special legislation.
