H.R. 1066 Peace Corps Expansion Act 2009

On February 13, 2009 Representative Sam Farr (CA-D) who is a returned Peace Corps Volunteer introduced the Peace Corps Expansion Act of 2009 (H.R. 1066) with 40 co-sponsors. Farr’s bill calls for $450 million to be budgeted in FY 2010 to support and expand the Peace Corps followed by $600 million for FY 2011 and $750 million in FY 2012.
