Ryan Meets with Janesville Students in Washington
WASHINGTON – Earlier this week, First District Congressman Paul Ryan met with Janesville students participating in the annual Washington Seminar program. The program, first created in 1973, provides an opportunity for students from Craig High School and Parker High School in Janesville, Wisconsin, to travel to Washington, D.C., and conduct field research through meetings and interviews with various government officials, including members of Congress.
During their meeting with Congressman Ryan, the Washington Seminar students were able to ask questions about important issues facing our nation, such as health care, veterans benefits, energy production, the federal budget, and the national debt.
After the meeting, Congressman Ryan said:
“This is one of my favorite meetings of the year. It’s always great seeing students from Janesville in Washington getting an up-close look at how our federal government works. The Washington Seminar students had thoughtful questions about important issues facing our country, and I appreciated their giving me an opportunity to share some of my thoughts on these issues. I hope they enjoyed their time in Washington, and I hope they keep up their interest in public service.”
