As of 2011, 22 states had at least one lawmaker under the age of 30, according to Brigham Young University researcher Bryan R. Brown, PhD. In most of those states, the so-called "Millennial Generation" or "Generation Y" lawmakers only served in the lower house.

And they served in both chambers in four states, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and South Dakota.
