Duquesne and Dominican University Interns Work with Important Democrats on the Hill

Molly Kirwan, a senior at Duquesne University, had the opportunity to be a legislative intern for Senator Robert Casey of Pennsylvania during the Fall 2014 semester. Her areas of focus in the office were issues of tax, trade, Social Security, jobs & labor, housing & homelessness, and pensions. Her major tasks included informing the Senator of current events in tax policy and trade policy on a weekly basis, analyzing the employment report put out by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on a monthly basis, and assisting in the organization of three separate Congressional hearings. 

Also on the Hill was Maggie Angel from Dominican University. As an intern in the office of Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois, Maggie experienced Congress and the legislative process. She attended Senate hearings and briefings, wrote memos for legislative staffers, and conducted background research for future legislation.
