Congress In The Classroom
By Catherine M. Welch
Wilmington, NC – Congressman Mike McIntyre will be making the rounds to some Wilmington elementary schools this week answering questions from school kids about what it's like to be in Congress.
While they're not the Washington Press Corps McIntyre says the school children have some pretty solid questions.
"The students are usually interested in the simple things like have you ever talked to the president, or when you make a law how do you see it's enforced and how does a bill become a law.
McIntyre will also be handing New Hanover County schools a check representing more than $400,000 representing technology discounts.
