On August 8, 2011, House leadership decided to conclude the Page Program. Speaker of the House John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement: "This decision was not easy, but it is necessary due to the prohibitive cost of the program and advances in technology that have rendered most Page-provided services no longer essential to the smooth functioning of the House." The program will be concluded by August 31, 2011. A copy of the letter sent from Speaker Boehner and Leader Pelosi to House offices can be found here.
