Senators John Hoeven (R-ND) and Pat Leahy (D-VT) on Aug. 1, 2013, re-introduced the bill as S. 1458.
We are honored to have such influential champions in the Senate: the top Republican on the appropriations subcommittee that funds the Legislative Branch, and the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Two additional Senate cosponsors have signed up and we anticipate others.
The companion House bill is expected to be introduced after the August recess with an extensive bipartisan cast of cosponsors. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, Sign the National Petition if you have not already and Write to Congress urging your Senator or House Member to cosponsor!
Leading up to the bill's re-introduction, a number of publications and blogs have covered the idea of a Congressional Clerkship Program. You can read about us at:
