Maine: Legislative Youth Advisory Council

The Legislative Youth Advisory Council is a permanent advisory Council created in statute by Public Law of 2001. This is the first Legislative Council in the nation, and the only one that they know of that has the power to submit legislation. The purpose of the Council is to advise the Legislature and its Committees on issues related to youth. The Council, which is comprised of four legislative members and 18 youth members, is directed to meet at least three and not more than six times each year, including up to at least two public hearings, and to conduct periodic seminars on leadership, government and the Legislature. The Council is required to report annually to the Legislature and is authorized by law to submit legislation. Click here to learn more. Click here to read the authorizing legislation.
