Youth Government Conference

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – At the Capitol today, hundreds of high school students are getting first-hand experience at how parliament operates.

As part of their Youth in Government conference, students are becoming temporary lawmakers. They will take part in debates, write bills and lobby their position on certain issues.

It is all to teach students what legislators do.

The conference runs through Sunday.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
