Kansas Intern Guide Drops Some Rules

KSAL StaffJanuary 10, 2014

The new guide for legislative interns at the Capitol does not contain proposed restrictions ranging from the amount of perfume and the number of earrings interns can wear.

Numerous rules suggested last week for inclusion in the 2014 intern handbook by Rep. Peggy Mast, an Emporia Republican, were edited out.

Also removed from the document was a rule asserting “inappropriate” photographs and language had to be deleted from personal social media sites.

Staff members of Democratic lawmakers raised questions about the intern fashion regulations that exceeded limits for legislators. Civil rights attorneys also took issue with the boundaries on social media expression for interns.

The interns begin work at the Statehouse on Monday.
