Congress Manual and Legislation Templates Updated

The FGCCFL Student Congress Manual and the legislation templates have been updated for 2018-2019. The updated manualRevision 18.07, incorporates some major changes:

  • Questioning periods now follow the same rules as NSDA and FFL: 2 minutes after the authorship and first negative, 1 minute after all other speeches. Extensions are no longer permitted.
  • All schools with Congress entries are now required to submit at least one satisfactory piece of legislation.
  • The legislation submission deadline and method have changed, and review by the Congress Coordinator is no longer required (though it is highly recommended).

In addition, new legislation templates are now available for download. These templates contain more informative guide text and are now compatible with Pages, Google Docs, and other platforms.

Good luck and happy legislating!
