WASHINGTON -- Kayla Hamilton, daughter of Richard Hamilton of Eldridge in Scott County and Duane and Denise Levien of Calamus in Clinton County, has just completed a seven-week internship in Washington, D.C., with Sen. Chuck Grassley. Hamilton is a senior at the University of Dubuque, majoring in sociology and business.
“Interning in Washington, D.C., is a good way to get a grasp on the inner workings of Capitol Hill and government itself,” Grassley said. “Interns play an important role in my office and learn through their exposure to all aspects of the operation. An internship is a unique opportunity for college-age students to be right in the middle of the legislative world and gather essential office experience.”
Hamilton served as a legislative intern aiding Grassley’s legislative staff. Her duties included performing research to aid in answering constituent questions, working on special projects for legislative assistants, such as keeping track of legislation as it moves through the House and Senate, preparing binders for bills, and filing and organizing paperwork.
“My internship in Senator Grassley’s office was invaluable,” Hamilton said. “Before I came here, I only had a general sense of how the three branches of government worked and I quickly learned how integral the legislative branch is. Senators and congressmen provide a very important service to our country, and I am glad that I was able to support their efforts this summer as well as work in the office of such a respected senator.”
