UPDATE March 22, 2010: The version of the H.R. 1612 passed by Congress on Saturday March 20th, while it includes many important elements, fails to deliver the benefits it was drafted to provide. Some last minute amendments greatly restrict the size and scope of the program and require that 75 percent of the funding be restricted to largely firefighting activities. This means Service Corps participants can only engage in a fraction of the national park visitor service and maintenance efforts that were in the original bill. These amendments change the nature of the program and limit the range of skill development for program participants.

NPCA urges the Senate to move quickly to pass a clean version of the bill that does not restrict the funding or scope of the program, that equitably and rationally distributes resources among participating agencies, and, most importantly, puts more young Americans to work in national parks in rural and urban locations across our country.

NPCA would like to thank supporters for taking action on this bill. If you haven’t already done so, please sign up for news and alerts at our Take Action center so we can keep you informed of legislative developments on the Public Lands Service Corps Act of 2009.
