A few notes...
Nice job so far! I'm impressed by the focus and seriousness you are all bringing to this task. The level of debate is high! A few quick observations:
This afternoon, your task is to take any bills that pass out of committee, and make sure you fully understand how the amendments modify the bill, and how these amendments modify your party and senator's positions on the bill.
What if my bill didn't make it out of committee?
You should still submit a final written speech to your Humanities teacher. You are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to add yourself to the speaker's list for another bill and speak in favor or opposition. This doesn't need to be formally written out, and can be shorter than the usual 2-3 minutes!
What are we doing tomorrow?
Tomorrow we'll be taking time to go over final details for the Exhibition at Fort Lewis, give you final feedback and notes before our last night, and to revise speeches for people who are speaking on Friday so that they better address the fully amended bill.
We'll be gathering all the materials you need, and putting them in your folders for me to transport up to the Fort.
We will also go over the Senior POL and paneling schedule to make sure there are no intractable conflicts.
Don't forget, we're on a WEDNESDAY schedule tomorrow!
