The following student recently served as an Indiana House Page during the 2009 session of the Indiana General Assembly.  As a page, students 13 years and older spend the day gaining a greater understanding about state government and how laws are made. 

Paging is a valuable experience in which students take a backstage tour of the Statehouse and work alongside legislative assistants and interns.  On session days, pages experience how a bill becomes a law as they watch legislators on the House floor debate issues.  On committee days, the students witness where a bill receives first consideration and watch hearings where the public submits input.

The Indiana House Page Program is an excellent way for students to become more familiar with the lawmaking process by meeting their State Representative and witnessing how laws are made firsthand.  It is a valuable experience that comes highly recommended.  Please feel free to call 317-232-9621 with further questions.
