SENATE ENVIRONMENT AND PUBLIC WORKS
Firstly, welcome to Harvard Model Congress San Francisco 2019! Our names are Claira Janover and Randle Steinbeck and we are all incredibly excited to see you in Senate Environment and Public Works this year!
As members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee you will be engaging, debating, and collaborating with one another in committee to create bipartisan solutions to environmentally contentious and diverse issues. This year, we will be focusing on the environmental impact of fracking and invasive species! We encourage all of you to begin the task of taking on your senator’s role and learning more about his/her political positions and considering the potential debates over topics that may be discussed within this conference through a broad political lens.
As your chairs, we hope to create and facilitate an environment in which you, as delegates, can interact and brainstorm with both us and other members of committee and explore the legislative possibilities to solutions for you as lawmakers.
We hope that this conference will provide you with a greater understanding of the United States legislative process, push you to improve your collaboration and public speaking skills, and allow you to consider of a myriad of contemporary political topics.
If you have any questions or concerns at all (or just want to reach out and introduce yourself!) feel free to shoot us an email.
We can’t wait to meet you all in January!
Claira Janover and Randle Steinbeck
Co-Chairs, Senate Environment and Public Works, HMCSF 2019
