Students in the Hamilton College Program in Washington, D.C. met with Rep. Richard L. Hanna (R-22) in his Capitol Hill office on March 12. He represents New York’s 22nd district in the U.S. House of Representatives, which includes Hamilton College.
During the visit, Hanna responded to questions from the group and discussed his positions on the crises in Syria and Ukraine, animal rights, health care and education, among others. He also discussed his transition from business to the House, where he is currently serving his second term.
The Spring 2014 session of the Hamilton College Program in Washington is being directed by Associate Professor of Government Sharon Werning Rivera. The program is offered every semester and is designed to supplement classroom and campus work by giving students the opportunity to study first-hand the operations and programs of the federal government.
