Part of the requirements in earning this merit badge are to attend a meeting of your city, town, or county council or school board; or attend a municipal, county, or state court session; and choose one of the issues discussed at the meeting where a difference of opinions was expressed, and explain to your counselor why you agree with one opinion more than you do another one.
