For the 2023 legislative session, we’re currently working with Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath’s office to secure support for AB 266 in the legislature.
This is a bill that would create a pilot program to pay interns within legislative offices. You can read the bill language here.
To support the legislation, you can submit a letter to the Higher Education committee, and use our template.
In 2022, we worked closely with Assemblywoman Tasha Berner Horvath to see how we could introduce a bill into the legislature that would push for internships in the legislature to be paid. While we made the decision to table the bill to improve it for the 2023 legislative session, we made incredible progress to carry over into 2023.
