Woodland student pages in Washington State House of Representatives

Maia Taylor paged in the Washington State House of Representatives February 12-16. She was sponsored by 20th District Rep. Ed Orcutt.

The Woodland student paged during the sixth week of the 60-day legislative session that began on January 8. She assisted the Washington State House of Representatives with duties on the chamber floor, made deliveries around the Capitol Campus, and supported the offices of members. Maia also attended Page School where she learned more about the Legislature and how its processes work.

“Maia was a great help to legislators in conducting our work. I was glad to sponsor her and pleased to get a chance to know her and her ambitions. She seemed to have a strong interest in the legislative process and was eager to learn about the work we do,” said Orcutt, R-Kalama. “I hope the week she spent here was as helpful to her as her help was to us.”

Maia is in 9th grade and homeschooled.

Pages work a 40-hour week, earn a stipend of $65 a day, and can earn up to 20 hours of community service. To serve as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives, students must be at least 14 years of age and have not reached their 17th birthday. Learn more:
