STATEHOUSE (Jan. 16, 2020) – State Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) encourages Hoosier students interested in state government to participate in the Indiana House Page Program during the 2020 legislative session.
According to Lucas, students ages 13 to 18 can spend a day at the Statehouse in Indianapolis assisting House legislators and staff, and touring the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court and the House and Senate chambers. He said it is also an opportunity to witness the legislative process in person, including debates on various proposals for new laws.
“The page program is a great learning experience for students as they spend a day in our historic Statehouse,” Lucas said. “Any student fascinated with government and history should take part in this program.”
Lucas said student pages receive an excused absence from school and groups can participate together. Students are responsible for their own lunch expenses and transportation to and from the Statehouse. Opportunities to serve as a page include Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session, which concludes by March 14. For more information and to sign up, visit IndianaHouseRepublicans.com/PageProgram or call 800-382-9841.
With limited openings, students are encouraged to apply soon.
State Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) represents House District 69, which includes
portions of Bartholomew, Jackson, Jennings and Jefferson counties.
