Start Date: 3/4/2011 All Day
End Date: 3/4/2011
STATEHOUSE- State Rep. Wendy McNamara (R-Mt. Vernon) had local students serve as pages for the day.  Katie Koewler, Kaitlyn Carrico, Adriana Funke and Melissa Bowers, all, recently served as Indiana House Pages during the 2011 session of the Indiana General Assembly. 

"It was a pleasure to meet and spend time with these students. The page program really gives Indiana youth unparalleled access to the Statehouse and to the legislative process," said Rep. McNamara.

As pages, the students were able to see how the state legislature works firsthand in a behind-the-scenes tour. During their tour, they saw where the Governor works and observed floor sessions of the House, Senate and Supreme Court chambers.

They also worked alongside Rep. McNamara, legislative assistants and interns. The pages served on Monday, February 21st and experienced how a bill becomes a law as they watched legislators on the House floor debate issues.

"The House Page Program is an educational way for students to gain a better understanding of the lawmaking process," said Rep. McNamara. I encourage all students to take advantage of this excellent academic opportunity."
