Dear Coaches,

We have posted the topic area for the Final Session of Congressional Debate at the 39th Newman Invitational. Please see the Congress page on our tournament website. As a reminder, there are no specific bills or resolutions that are provided to the debaters. That does not preclude debaters from speaking on specific proposals and clashing with others. There are no authorship speeches. There are no designated "pro" or "con" speeches that alternate. There will be no student presiding officer in the finals. The parliamentarian will serve as presiding officer and maintain speech and cross examination times as well as choosing speakers based on standard procedures of precedence and recency.

We hope that the debaters enjoy preparing for and participating in Congressional Debate next weekend.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Greg and Alma
