Washington, D.C. – The Washington, D.C. office and the district offices of the Honorable Bobby Jindal will continue to serve the people of the First Congressional District of Louisiana under the supervision of the Clerk of the House of Representatives. Representative Jindal resigned from Congress effective January 14, 2008.

Staff members of Representative Jindal remain on the House payroll under the supervision of the Clerk of the House to receive and undertake constituent casework, to help in handling business with the departments of the executive branch of the government, to provide general status information on pending legislation and to offer other general constituent services provided by House offices. The Clerk of the House is Lorraine C. Miller.
