May 01, 2015Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today cosponsored the Public Lands Service Corps Act of 2015. The bill, introduced by Senator Tom Udall (D-NM), expands the pool of Public Lands Corps participants to include veterans, encourages recruitment among minority and underserved communities, makes it easier for Corps members to finish a degree before starting a full-time conservation career, and creates new programs to coordinate Corps activities at multiple federal agencies. It will help federal agencies do more within their current budgets without using additional taxpayer dollars.
