Peace Corps: Current Issues [Updated February 4, 2008]   [open pdf - 99KB]

"Generally viewed positively by the public and widely supported in Congress, the Peace Corps, the U.S. agency that provides volunteer skills internationally, has drawn congressional attention in recent years largely due to two issues - a 2002 Presidential initiative to significantly expand the size of the agency and reports in 2003-2004 raising concerns regarding the safety and security of volunteers. Both issues stimulated legislative action with bills being approved by House or Senate. However, these legislative efforts died with the 108th Congress. In 2007, the 110th Congress will consider the President's annual funding request for the Peace Corps."
