National Service Act. A Report Together with Minority and Additional Views. House of Representatives Committee on Education and Labor, 101st Congress, 2d Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This document contains the amended text of H.R. 4330, the National Service Act, a bill to establish school-based and higher education community service programs, to establish youth service programs, and to establish a model Good Samaritan food donation program, which was recommended by the Committee on Education and Labor. The document also contains a line-by-line analysis of the bill and the provisions that were amended during the hearing process and analysis of the effects that the legislation would have. Finally, the document contains minority views of the Bush Administration presented by the Secretary of Education and nine members of Congress, opposing the bill. The minority viewpoint says that the proposed legislation would create unnecessary new programs; undermine genuine, unpaid volunteer efforts; provide unneeded financial incentives; and cause unwarranted expenditures.
