I am in the process of posting the Congress schedule for the regular tournament.  We will ask that legislation is submitted two weeks from today.  That should allow us to post a docket on Thursday Nov. 29 and get your students a full two weeks to work on the document.  

 

Congressional Debate

2018  Congressional  Debate Information & Schedule

Legislation: Each participating school may submit up to two bills and/or resolutions by 5:00 p.m. CST, Tuesday November 27, 2018 to blakelegislation@gmail.com, using the official templates formatted per NFL regulations (see http://congressionaldebate.org). Tournament staff will review legislation for pertinent, controversial and researchable issues, and post a docket to this page by Thursday Nov. 29, 2018 (sooner if possible). Legislation characterized by seriousness of purpose is most likely to be selected, and to that end, delegates are reminded that bills allow for deeper debate, since they establish the mechanisms by which a proposed law will be enacted.
