STATEHOUSE (Dec. 20, 2018) – State Reps. Steve Davisson (R-Salem) and Karen Engleman (R-Georgetown) encourage students who want to learn more about state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2019 legislative session.

“With the page program, students ages 13 to 18 visit the Statehouse in Indianapolis and get a firsthand look at the legislative process,” Davisson said.  “Meeting pages from our community and sharing what I do at the state level is exciting, and I hope to see many familiar faces from our community this session.”

According to Engleman, pages help staff and local legislators, tour government offices, and learn about the legislative process.

“Students who are interested in state government and the lawmaking process should sign up for this great experience,” Engleman said. “Pages get the unique opportunity to explore the Statehouse and take part in session for a day. Space is limited, so I encourage students in our community to apply soon.”

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.
