Voice of America follows Katie Porter for her freshman term


Editor's note: Voice of America is following two new U.S. lawmakers -- Democratic Representative Katie Porter, representing California's 45th congressional district, and Republican Representative Pete Stauber, representing Minnesota's 8th congressional district -- as they learn the ropes as freshman lawmakers in the 116th U.S. Congress. Through their eyes, we hope to offer VOA audiences a deeper insight into the inner workings of one of the three branches in the American system of government. In the coming months, VOA will be reporting on the lawmakers' experiences and challenges during their first year in the House of Representatives.”
