INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:
- “Fifty years later after President Kennedy’s famous call to service, his words still ring true today. ACTION for National Service will give people the opportunity to serve their communities and fund their education. Paying for higher education is something that many people struggle with, and this legislation will allow students to help their communities, and in turn receive either student loan relief or an educational credit. For every year of service, students will receive the equivalent of two-years in-state tuition. The saying goes, a rising tide lifts all boats, and this legislation will achieve that,” said Congressman Larson. (Source: Rep. Larson, Press Release, 6/25/19)
