Sununu's Millennial Advisory Council Meets Again

Jan 29, 2018

A month after issuing an initial set of recommendations on how to make New Hampshire more hospitable to young adults, the Governor’s Millennial Advisory Council will gather at the State House Tuesday night.

No formal agenda has been publicized, but the council will likely build off of the report it published in December, which tackled everything from climate change and conservation policies, to commuter rail and college costs.

That initial report suggested overhauling some of the state’s housing policies to make buying or renting more affordable and tax credits for employers that hire recent New Hampshire graduates. It also advised investing in more promotion around the state’s outdoor attractions, as well as its arts and culture.

Gov. Chris Sununu first created the millennial advisory council in September, hailing it as an important way to get direct feedback from young people on key policy issues.

A millennial member of Sununu’s staff was selected to lead the group, and most of its members were chosen based on recommendations from chambers of commerce across the state. It’s met several times since September, but its meetings have not been widely promoted.
