Pettengill Releases Information on Legislative Page Program


Pettengill Releases Information on Legislative Pages


(DES MOINES)  —Rep. Dawn Pettengill (R-Mt. Auburn) 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.  Typically, preference is given to seniors; however high school juniors should also be encouraged to apply. 


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 $8.32 per hour for 40 hours per week.  Additionally, many schools grant credit for a student’s work in the Legislature. 


Rep. Pettengill is encouraging area students to apply for the Page program.


“I really enjoy seeing students from our area at the Capitol each day, this program is a great way for students to expand their knowledge, learn hands-on skills, and get involved with their government,” said Rep. Pettengill.  “I think the program allows students to be prepared for future demands of their academic and professional careers.  This is another opportunity to allow them to respond to organizational priorities and directives outside of the typical classroom.”


The application for the 2008 Legislative Page Program is due no later than October 5, 2007.  To receive more information or an application, Rep. Pettengill hopes those interested will visit http://www.legis.state.ia.us/PageInfo/2008_Page_Application.pdf
