STATUS: Introduced 2/28/19 by Rep. McCollum, Betty [D-MN-4].
ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORTIVE OF THE BILL:
- “CNCS staff in these 46 state and territorial offices are immersed within the communities they serve, making them especially aware of their community’s unique needs – and how CNCS service programs can help fill those gaps most effectively,” Rep. McCollum said. “Closing these offices without consulting stakeholders and moving toward a hastily developed regional plan undermines the CNCS mission and is unacceptable.” (Source: Betty McCollum, Press Release, 2/28/19)
