A Pacoima assemblywoman tries to give more young people a say in government

Pacoima, Arleta and San Fernando Assemblywoman Luz Rivas has introduced a bill in the state Legislature that she says would allow underserved young people across the state to have a say in policy decisions that affect them. 

Her California Youth Empowerment Act - Assembly Bill 1858 - would establish a youth advisory commission, with the goal of spurring underrepresented young people to get civically engaged.
