The Committee for Legislative Staff Internships is a statutorily created Committee whose principal responsibility is the development and administration of Connecticut General Assembly (CGA) interns. The Committee is a bi-partisan body with bi-partisan co-chairs, who alternate between the respective houses, in each successive term. Since 1980, the Committee has retained the services of an administrator to serve as Director.
Recognizing the need to provide educational opportunities not typically available to students in the traditional academic setting, the Connecticut General Assembly has established an internship program to acquaint students with both the formal and informal aspects of the legislative process.
