The House of Representatives passed 406 to 0 the Kate Puzey Peace Corps Volunteer Act of 2011

This legislation is unique that it has bi-partisan support and represents the kind of cooperation between parties for which we all can be grateful.   The speeches earlier lauded  the Peace Corps Volunteer and the bravery of the RPCV women of First Response Action who worked for this legislation.  The Senate has already passed the bill.

It now goes to the President for his signature and it will then become law. This link should show the House Proceedings for November 1, 2011
