   Members and coordinators of the 1st Legislative District Youth Advisory Council traveled to the state capitol recently to testify before legislative committees on two school safety bills.

   State Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, D-Bothell, formed the group of area teenagers to help them learn more about the legislative process. She also wanted to have a core group of young advisors who would keep her informed about issues that are important to young people.
