YIG Volunteer Lobbyist Registration Form

Delegates wishing to work with the legislative branch, but not wishing to serve as senators or representatives have the option of registering as lobbyists, provided they have served in the legislative branch at a prior conference (i.e. freshmen are not eligible). Lobbyists will spend the conference pursuing goals both as individuals and components, as well as coordinating other legislative activity. Lobbyists are charged with shedding light on facts, ideas, and opinions that support their position in an attempt to influence decision making in state government. LIMIT 2 PER SCHOOL.

Argue for and against the legislation using at least two full paragraphs. Each side should use between 150-300 words.

Please list three ideas for a goal. These are ideally small and specific achievements. For example: "Pass legislation that increases the use of school vouchers" or "Reduce funding for the Department of Military."
