The social work group from UND that visited the ND legislative assembly yesterday. You will note our alumnus, Rep Oversteen, along with Rep Mock and Senator Schneider were also in the photo. They hosted a noon event for the group and provided input on bills of interest and the legislative process in general. Look for faculty members Flanagan, Hanson and Sele who accompanied the group as well.

It was a great day with the Senate Human Services committee dealing with the Medicaid expansion bill that has already passed the house. This is an issue vital to social work practice. A wonderful in-service was provide by Senator Judy Lee who Chairs that committee specifically for our students during the committee hearing process.

All students sat on the floor of the house or senate and visited directly with legislators in the afternoon.
