Children and Youth Cabinet Meets

December 5th, 2007 by flanews

The Children and Youth Cabinet is figuring out what issues to focus on in the upcoming legislative session.  Florida lawmakers created the youth cabinet earlier this year.  It is made up of several state agency department leaders, like the Surgeon General and the secretary of the Department of Children and Families, to name two.  The state is in a budget crunch, and lawmakers realize that funding for children’s programs might be tight.  But some say it needs to be a priority.

“These are investments that pay off tremendously in the long run,” said Rep. Lorranne Ausley, a Tallahassee Democrat.  “So particularly in a tight budget year, this is the place where we ought to be investing.  We get federal dollars for many of these programs.”

This was the second meeting of the Children and Youth Cabinet.
