Intern assignments in the offices of Assemblymembers or with research staff consist of a variety of responsibilities. Short-term research and responding to constituent mail are frequent assignments. Often the two are closely integrated with constituent questions leading to research projects. Interns keep track of bills moving through the legislative process. Some routine duties are always part of the functions of an Assembly office. Bill memo preparation and statistical analysis are also common assignments. Interns frequently attend and report on committee meetings, public hearings and Assembly Sessions.
