Whether you are interested in a tour of your state capitol or would like more information about a particular program funded and maintained by the state government, I encourage you to contact my office.

There are free tours available in the state capitol year round, seven days a week. From Monday through Saturday, the tours depart from the Information Desk on the ground floor of the capitol rotunda at 9:00, 10:00, 11:00am, and 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00pm. Sunday tours are available at 1:00, 2:00 and 3:00pm. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day an additional 4:00pm tour is offered every day. During the summer the sixth floor museum and observation deck are open to the public, offering incredible views of the city of Madison and of the isthmus. To learn more about arranging a tour of the capitol during your upcoming visit to Madison, please visit the capitol tours web page. For groups of ten or more, please call (608) 266-0382 to reserve your tour, or complete the online reservation form you will find on the web page.
Many of the legislative staffers and my colleagues in the Assembly began their careers in the state capitol as interns. Their experiences equipped them with the knowledge of state government and the tools they needed to succeed professionally. If you are a college student, an internship with the Wisconsin State Assembly can be a very rewarding experience. I encourage you to contact my office if you are interested in applying. Simply submit your resume and a brief cover letter to my office by mail or e-mail.
Additional career opportunities are available in the legislature as well. If you would like your resume sent to a broader reach, please fill out the information requested.
Hunting, fishing, and trapping are all great outdoor recreation along with boating, snowmobiling, and riding ATVs. You can get your licenses, find information about safety education, and report your harvests all on the DNR's GoWild website.
