I run an internship program accepting college students interested in learning about the operations of a congressional office. In addition to general office support, interns assist my staff with constituent services, Capitol tours, and light research. Interns are also encouraged to attend hearings, lectures, and seminars available in Congress and around the Hill.

Military Academy Nominations

Each member of Congress, either in the House of Representatives or the Senate, is allowed a total of five appointees in each service academy. For each vacancy, I am allowed to nominate ten individuals. Learn more about the Military Academy nominations process.

Page Program

For nearly 200 years, Pages served the House of Representatives by assisting Members of the House with their legislative duties. Over time, their principal tasks—carrying documents, messages, and letters between various congressional offices—passed from older messengers to teenage boys and (much later) girls. Their responsibilities also changed with the times, as Pages were required to go to school beginning in the first half of the 20th century.

In recent times, Pages were high school juniors with strong academic records who served for a fall, spring, or summer appointment. While serving the House, Pages lived in Washington D.C., at the Page Residence Hall, a few blocks away from the U.S. Capitol, and fall and spring Pages attended classes at the House Page School. Pages were selected by the Majority and Minority Leadership and sponsored by individual Members. 

In August 2011, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi directed the Clerk of the House and other House officials to initiate the closing of the House Page Program. They cited advances in technology that reduced the need for services traditionally provided by Pages, as well as the high cost of the program.

The Office of the Clerk website offers more information on the history of the Page Program.
