Executive Order #79

Governor Christine Todd Whitman

See EO # 34, #99, and #107 Whitman and EO #71 Florio.

WHEREAS, Governor Kean established the Governor's Advisory Committee on Public/Private Volunteer Partnerships ("Advisory Committee"); and

WHEREAS, Executive Order No. 71 (1992) issued by Governor Florio renamed the Advisory Committee the Governor's Advisory Council on Volunteerism and Community Service ("Advisory Council"); and

WHEREAS, Executive Order No. 34 (1995) continued the Advisory Council and, among other things, changed the membership of the Council; and

WHEREAS, in order for the Advisory Council to better encourage and support volunteerism in the State of New Jersey, it is advisable to change the membership of the Advisory Council to include the Commissioners of Transportation and Environmental Protection and the Adjutant General of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, as these Departments administer statewide volunteer programs;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, CHRISTINE TODD WHITMAN, Governor of the State of New Jersey, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and by the Statutes of this State, do hereby ORDER and DIRECT:

1. Executive Order No. 34 (1995) shall remain in full force and effect except as modified herein.

GIVEN, under my hand and seal
this 10th day of February in the
