BILL INTRODUCED!   

The Congressional Clerkship Coalition is delighted to annonce that on Dec. 5, 2016, Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) introduced the Daniel Webster Congressional Clerkship Act, as S. 3499.  

They are joined by Senators John Hoeven (R-ND) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) as original cosponsors.  

We commend their leadership and are delighted to work with them to see this important, non-controversial, bipartisan legislation enacted during the lame duck session!
