Rep. Johanson hosted an exchange student from Russia

Rep. Aaron Ling Johanson hosted Tatyana Zasheva, an exchange student at Aiea High School, for a day at the Capitol. She was one of twenty students that took part in the Freedom Support Act Shadowing program. Tatiana is from Russia and is in Hawaii for the 2010-11 school year.

The one of the main purposes of the program is for students to gain an in-depth understanding about American government and its rules of law. Rep. Johanson helped Tatiana understand all the steps a bill takes on its way to becoming law. She and her co-participants were introduced during the House Session on Friday, January 7th.
