  Section 1. Legislative declaration. The legislature hereby  finds  and
declares:  (a) that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death
for  teens;  (b) the risk of motor vehicle crashes is higher among 16 to
19 year olds than among any other age group; and  (c)  the  presence  of
teen  passengers  increases the crash risk of unsupervised teen drivers.
The legislature therefore finds and declares that a teen  driver  safety
commission shall be established pursuant to this act.
  S 2. Teen driver safety commission. 1. The commission shall consist of
twelve  members. Four of the members shall be appointed by the governor,
of which one shall be from the department of motor  vehicles.  Three  of
the members shall be appointed by the temporary president of the senate.
Three  of the members shall be appointed by the speaker of the assembly.
One member shall be appointed by the minority leader of the senate.  One
member  shall  be  appointed by the minority leader of the assembly. All
appointments shall be made within thirty days of the effective  date  of
this act.
  2.  The commission shall, within twenty days following the appointment
of all its members, elect a chairperson from among such members.
  3. The commission shall study, examine and review the  issue  of  teen
driver safety.  In conducting its study, the commission shall:
  (a)  study  and  evaluate the availability and effectiveness of driver
education and training programs in the state, as well as a selection  of
driver  education  and  training  programs offered throughout the United
States;
