Constitution Day Reminder: Copies of Pocket Constitution Available
WASHINGTON - Today, as schools around the nation observe Constitution Day by teaching about the U.S. Constitution, Congressman Paul Ryan reminded residents of Wisconsin's First District that congressional offices have a limited number of free pocket-sized copies of the Constitution available upon request as a resource for their constituents. Constitution Day marks the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.
"The Constitution is the basis of our government and the cornerstone of our free society. As we commemorate the signing of this document, we should make sure it is accessible to all citizens and encourage people to read or reread this document that forms so much of the foundation of our nation," Ryan said.
First District residents who are interested in receiving a pocket edition of the Constitution (limited to one per household) can contact Ryan's office to request a copy. To contact Ryan's office, constituents can send an e-mail via the web site (http://www.house.gov/ryan) or write a letter and send it to 20 South Main St., Suite 10, Janesville, WI 53545.
