NATIONAL SERVICE REAUTHORIZATION ACT -- (Senate - March 26, 2009)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. KENNEDY. I thank my colleague from New Mexico and also my colleague from Ohio. I certainly agree that government service is public service. I also agree that we need to do more to encourage talented young men and women to serve in the government and make it financially possible for them to do so. We took a significant step to do so in the last Congress, with the public service loan forgiveness program in the College Cost Reduction and Access Act. I would be pleased to work with the Senator and our colleagues in the HELP Committee to see that the proposed Roosevelt Scholars Act and its emphasis on building new pipelines to bring talent into government service receive a full hearing and consideration by the committee.
