Eustace & Giblin Measure Urging President Obama to Create Presidential Youth Council Clears Assembly PanelA measure sponsored by Assembly Democrats Tim Eustace and Thomas P. Giblin asking President Obama to establish a Presidential Youth Council to advise the President and the administration on the perspectives of young people, and ensure that policies enacted to serve the youth are practical and effective was released earlier this week by an Assembly panel.
"We often don't give our youth enough credit. Young people have unique perspectives that are essential in ensuring that government investments in youth programs and services are effective and efficient," said Eustace (D-Bergen/Passaic). "Being able to hear directly from young people about the issues affecting them and what programs are working or not working would help make our government more effective and encourage more youth participation in the political process."
