(DES MOINES)  — House Republicans today released information on the Iowa Legislative Page program.  Each year the Iowa House of Representatives, the Iowa Senate and Legislative Services Agency (LSA) employ Iowa high school juniors and seniors to serve as Pages for the legislative session which begins in January.

Duties of the Senate Pages, House Pages, and LSA Pages vary slightly but generally Pages provide invaluable assistance to Representatives or Senators and staff by assisting with tasks such as the switchboard, delivering messages, distributing legislation, assisting committee chairpersons or sorting amendments. Pages are paid and many schools grant credit for a student’s work in the Legislature.

House Republicans are encouraging local students to apply for the 2015 Page program.

“I hope area students will apply to serve as Legislative Pages.  It is a worthwhile opportunity for students to gain real world experiences, see firsthand how laws are made, and interact with their government and elected officials,” said Speaker of the House Kraig Paulsen.

The application for the 2015 Legislative Page Program is due no later than Friday, October 3, 2014.  To receive more information or an application, visit: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/agencies/careers/page.
