Nebraska college students interested in becoming a page for the Nebraska Legislature for the 2017 Legislative session are encouraged to apply. Details from the Clerk of the Legislature’s office are below.
Description: Legislative pages are selected in the fall each year to work for the upcoming legislative session, beginning the following January. Pages respond to Senator’s request lights on the legislative floor. They run errands, deliver messages, photocopy materials, get food and drink for the Senators, assist the presiding officer, set up and staff committee hearings and perform other duties as assigned.
Requirements: Pages must be high school graduates who are currently enrolled in a Nebraska college or trade school with a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. They must be able to work 20 hours a week during session. It is preferred that they work the same four-hour shift each day. The legislative session will begin January 4, 2017, and go through May 2017. This is a paid position and you may also be able to receive credit hours through your college. First year pages will earn approximately $10.37 per hour, and second year pages approximately $10.78 per hour.
Parking: Parking is limited. There are no reserved parking facilities available. Most street parking around the Capitol is two-hour parking. The city will ticket if you park longer. We suggest that you may want to park on the side streets or carpool with other pages.
To Apply: Applications are available through the Clerk of the Legislature’s office, Room 2018, State Capitol, 1445 K Street, or through your state Senator’s office. A page applicant is also encouraged to contact his or her home district state senator for a letter of recommendation. If you do not know who your senator is, please contact the Clerk of the Legislature’s office for assistance. When you have completed the application, please return it to the Clerk of the Legislature’s office, Room 2018, State Capitol, 1445 K Street, Lincoln NE 68509.
Deadline: The page application deadline for the 2017 legislative session will be Monday, October 3, 2016. The page selection committee will meet October 13, 2016, to interview and select individuals to fill those positions to start January 4, 2017.
