Go Back to School with Schoolhouse Rock!: Legislative Process

Currently Offered Sessions

No sessions currently scheduled.


Join us for a webinar on the legislative process and locating legislative resources. Before the session, learners will watch Just a Bill (https://youtu.be/FFroMQlKiag) from Schoolhouse Rock!. Riegelman and Beck will elaborate on the content in the video and use it to test your knowledge. By starting with this video intended for an elementary audience, we will layer on more advanced content about the legislative process as well as guidance on tools that are available. Meet us in this liminal space as we transition from novices to experts.

Attendees will be able to identify the steps that a bill takes to become a law (and the pitfalls in between!). An understanding of the legislative process as well as an awareness of the freely available and fee-based tools will help attendees tackle challenging patron inquiries about legislative information.
