First official post from state capital internship
This is the first week that I am getting credit for the state capital internship in California. The internship so far is great. I have got to watch how the legislation work on the floor, and talk about bills when voting. I also am getting to see how the budget is processed and how it has to go through a lot of drafts and both sides have to work with each other to get it to work. I mostly do research on water and agricultural issues. A lot of reading, but it is great because I am reading and getting exposed to many issues I would not have gotten other wise. One other thing i really enjoy doing so far is talking to constituents and hearing how they feel about different things.
