PUBLIC HEARINGS BEING HELD ON YOUTH GROUPS

June 17, 2003 — The Senate Committee on Education and Youth is holding a public hearing to discuss the status of youth groups and organizations in the territory on June 25 at Earl B. Ottley Legislative Hall on St. Thomas. A similar meeting is being held Wednesday for the St. Croix district in the Legislative Conference Room. Both hearings begin at 6 p.m.
Youth leaders and organizers planning to attend the hearings are asked to present a status report of their programs, including goals, staffing and funding needs. The committee is also seeking testifiers with knowledge of, or who were involved in, the former Youth Commission, which was abolished in the government reorganization of 1987.
Testifiers should present written statements if possible and limit their testimonies to three minutes. All persons planning on attending the hearings should call Sen. Ronald Russell's office at 712-2229 or 712-2321 to confirm attendance. Testifiers should sign in by 5:30 p.m. on the day of the hearings.
