This week, Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 188 (PDF) which directs various state agencies to implement the recommendations of the Interagency Task Force to Combat Youth Bias Report (PDF) that do not require legislation. The purpose of the Task Force was to identify and implement strategies to reduce the increase in youth bias crimes that has occurred over the past few years.
For more information on the executive order please see the League’s recent blog post.
