Representative Virginia Fox,
As a Citizen of the United States I urge you as the Chair of the Education and
Workforce Committee to consider with all your colleagues to become aware of and consider being a co-sponsor of H.R. 2206 -
The 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Act. Also a
similar letter has been sent to the Ranking Member.
H.R. 2206 - the 21st Century CCC Act, sponsored by Marcy Kaptur OH-9 would
authorize the President to re-establish the Civilian Conservation Corps as a means of providing gainful employment to unemployed
and underemployed citizens of the United States through the performance of useful public work, and for other purposes.
The CCC demonstrated
that there was absolutely no conflict between the preservation of the environment and the creation of jobs!
The CCC is regarded as the most popular government program in U.S. History, and was the government’s most lasting
environmental effort as well. This all public sector program will be a tangible
investment in our Human and Natural Resource Capital.
It would be non-partisan in scope as an alternative national service.
In WW2, one out of six in uniform served in the CCC! The CCC program will annually give over 300,000 openings for young
unskilled adult citizens, able bodied Veterans and our forgotten Native Americans and also provide professional career opportunities
for supervisor staff, engineers and scientists. Other duties would include
national defense and disaster relief.
Please kindly send or email me a written response!
