STATEHOUSE (Dec. 19, 2018) – State Rep. Douglas Gutwein (R-Francesville) encourages students who want to learn more about state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2019 legislative session.

According to Gutwein, those who are between the ages of 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis helping staff and local legislators, touring government offices, and learning about the legislative process.

“The page program is an excellent opportunity for students to experience state government in action,” Gutwein said. “Not only do they get to witness legislative proceedings in the House Chamber, but they also get to interact with staff and tour the Capitol building. I hope to see many students from our community around the Statehouse this year.”

Gutwein said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together. For more information and to sign up, visit www.indianahouserepublicans.com/pageprogram or call 800-382-9841.

The 2019 legislative session begins Thursday, Jan. 3, and must conclude by April 30.
