STATEHOUSE (Dec. 20, 2018) – State Reps. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) and Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) encourage students who want to learn more about state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2019 legislative session.

“The page program gives students the opportunity to get a firsthand look at how laws are enacted at the state level,” Frye said. “Pages generally come on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday every week when legislators are in session. Meeting pages from our community and sharing my work at the Statehouse with them is something I look forward to every year.”

According to Lucas, 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.

“It is always great to have House pages join us on the House floor for session,” said Lucas. “They get to participate in activities like helping legislative staff with various tasks, running messages to legislators in the House Chamber and touring the Statehouse.”

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

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