Rep. Huseman releases info on legislative pages

By: Associated Press

(DES MOINES) -Rep. Dan Huseman (R-Aurelia) today released information on the Iowa Legislative Page program. Each year the Iowa House of Representatives, Iowa Senate and Legislative Services Agency (LSA) employs Iowa high school juniors and seniors to serve as Pages for the legislative session.

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.

Rep. Huseman is encouraging local students to apply for the Page program.

"The page program is a really great opportunity for students to learn real world experiences, gain a greater understanding of government and learn new skills," said Huseman.

The application for the 2009 Legislative Page Program is due no later than October 3, 2008. To receive more information or an application, Rep. Huseman hopes those interested will visit www.legis.state.ia.us/PageInfo
