Crapo Welcomes Spring 2014 Interns

Idaho students to gain firsthand knowledge about the legislative process

Washington, D.C. - Idaho Senator Mike Crapo welcomes seven new interns to his Boise regional office and his Capitol office in Washington, D.C., to learn more about Congress and the federal government.  Interns assist the Senator and his staff in serving the people of Idaho by conducting legislative research, providing administrative support and giving tours of the U.S. Capitol to visiting Idahoans and their families. 

"Having served an internship on Capitol Hill, I know what a tremendous opportunity this can be for Idaho's students," said Crapo. "Gaining firsthand knowledge about our country's most deliberative body benefits young people no matter their chosen future career path or field."
