Capitol Guest Page Program

My office is currently accepting requests to be a guest page for a day in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Guest pages must be at least 12 years old and have an interest in state government.

Guest pages serve on the House floor on session days and for only one day. Only eight guest pages are allowed on the floor each day.

Requests to be a guest page are processed as received and should be submitted at least two weeks in advance of the date requested. Guest pages are introduced on the House floor and receive a certificate in recognition of their service.

Young people interested in becoming a guest page should either contact my Harrisburg office at (717) 783-2655 or my district office at (717) 767-3947.
