“Many state workers and people who serve in government began their careers as legislative interns,” said Rep. Haas. “I’m happy to provide this opportunity for students to work in the 79th District, learning more about how we serve constituents and make it easier for them to access their state government. I encourage college students to submit an application for a phenomenal opportunity to learn more about the Illinois House!”
