Participating from Hood are Brooks Anderson ’22, Nick Fisher ’19, Shea Jakubowksi ’22, Jacob Keith ’21, Natalie Kolosieke ’21 and Nik Smith ’19. Keith is also the MSL attorney general, so he approves bills for the docket.

On Friday, students will meet in committees to markup legislation. They will meet as a general assembly Saturday and Sunday in Hodson Science and Technology Center, Room 131.

Bills on the docket include an act altering the state handling of animal abusers, an act altering the definition of indecent exposure, a change in the Maryland presidential primary system and the adoption of a “Kid Governor” program.

Each year during MSL fall session, members experience the legislative process of the actual house of delegates and senate chambers.
