U.S. Congressman Robert Dold recently hosted a Model Congress for approximately 80 area high school students. These students were able to participate in a mock Congress and learn more about the legislative process and what goes into making a bill. Representatives from CMAP, the Illinois Policy Institute, the Concord Coalition, and the Patch were there to help teach the students about participating in the legislative process.

"It is encouraging to see our young people pushing themselves to learn more and to get involved," Dold said. "By participating in Model Congress these students were able to advocate for or against a bill and were challenged to explain why they held their particular belief. These students are better preparing themselves for leadership roles, community involvement, and more. I also want to thank those individuals who volunteered their time to help give the students an inside perspective of the legislative process."
