About one hundred college interns work at the state capitol in Jefferson City from universities and colleges across the state.

Interns completed a sexual harassment seminar earlier this week as part of their training to work in the capitol building.

Representative Deleta Williams of Warrensburg who serves as the democratic intern coordinator says the seminar is nothing new.

Contents: "That particular training program that we've been doing this week, was not brought about as a result of Washington DC. It was brought about because of a policy we've had in place for several years."

Legislators do not participate in a sexual harassment program dealing directly with interns.
