Video: Senator Dodd announces AmeriCorps Act of 2008
Posted by Zach Maurin on May 16, 2008
I was in the Capitol building today with the National Service community to hear Senator Dodd’s announcement to strengthen this country’s commitment service. This is also co-sponsored by Senator Thad Cochran (R-MI). The video is a little shaky, but if you’ve seen my other work (as in my sideways videos) this is a big improvement.

Part 1: Senator Dodd reflects on his decision to serve in the Peace Corps — which he credits for changing his life.
Part 2: Dodd discusses some of the legislation (raising the Segal Education award, for example) and even finds time to crack a joke!
