Yikes, H. R. 1388: ‘Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act’

Whew! It is all a bit much to keep up with — the startling minute by minute CHANGE that the Obama administration is cranking out.

World News Daily Reports:

OBAMA WATCH CENTRAL
House adopts plan for ‘volunteer’ corps
Also requires new evaluation of ‘mandatory’ service for all


The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a plan to set up a new “volunteer corps” and consider whether “a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people” should be developed.

The legislation also refers to “uniforms” that would be worn by the “volunteers” and the “need” for a “public service academy, a 4-year institution” to “focus on training” future “public sector leaders.” The training, apparently, would occur at “campuses.”

The vote yesterday came on H.R. 1388, which reauthorizes through 2014 the National and Community Service Act of 1990 and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973, acts that originally, among other programs, funded the AmeriCorps and the National Senior Service Corps.

Read the rest of the report.
