Barrasso Accepting Applications for Fall Internships

Press Release – U.S. Senator John Barrasso, R-Wyo., is currently accepting applications for internships in his Washington, D.C. and Wyoming offices, for fall 2017. The program, which lasts four months, is designed to give Wyoming’s students a unique opportunity to view their government firsthand.
