State Assemblyman Anthony D’Urso welcomed Manhasset High School students Benjamine Mo and Lucia Osses when they came to Albany to shadow and observe him as a legislator.

Benjamine and Lucia participated in the League of Women Voters New York State Education Foundation’s 17th annual Students Inside Albany Conference. The purpose of this conference is to inform and educate students about their role in maintaining a democratic society.

In addition to the conference, the students were invited by D’Urso to observe him during an Assembly session where they saw democracy in action as the Assemblymembers discussed and then voted on bills. These students got to see firsthand how bills are enacted into law.
