State Rep. Woody Burton had another opportunity to show students between the ages of 13-18 how the legislative system in Indiana works through the Pages Program. The 2016 program is in the books and the students locally had a wonderful time at the state house this past week.
Would you like to see how our state legislature works? Through the Indiana House Page Program, any student 13 to 18 years of age or older gets the chance to come to the Statehouse and see a full day of legislative activity.
Along with visiting the capitol building and touring such locations as the governor's office, the chambers of the Indiana House and Senate and the Indiana Supreme Court, pages get the chance to witness floor sessions and committee meetings and help staff members.
Students who serve as pages receive an excused absence from school. They are responsible for their own transportation to and from Indianapolis.
State Rep. Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) recently welcomed the following student pages to the Statehouse: (Links to photos may work?)
As a House Page these participants toured government offices, helped staff with daily duties and jined Burton on the House floor as he conducted the people’s business
Burton said although openings for this year’s page program have been filled, students aged 13-18 should consider participating next session.
