Y&G Celebrates an Amazing 70th Model Legislature & Court Program Year
3,300 delegates representing 90 delegations from across the state came together in Sacramento in February to participate in the 70th Model Legislature & Court. Among their many accomplishments, delegates made their voices heard throughout over 30 program areas, including those participating in Legislative Houses on the Senate and Assembly floors. Throughout the weekend, delegates also presided over cases in the Supreme Court Chambers, drafted a new California State Budget and Constitution. We were impressed to also see participants draft and submit over 200 pieces of legislation, 58 of which were signed by our 70th Youth Governor, Cole Cahill.
The conference began with a rally on the steps of the Capitol led by Asm. Evan Low, and featured speeches by Asm. Ian Calderon and Millennial Action Project Founder, Steven Olikara.
Making History - Congratulations to Jenny Lee (Torrance - South Bay) who was elected to serve as our 71st Chief Justice and Scott Nagatoshi (Miller) who was elected to serve as our 71st Youth Governor.
