House Natural Resources chairman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) introduced HR 1612, the “Public Lands Service Corps Act of 2009” this week. HR 1612 would require the Secretaries of the Interior, Agriculture, Commerce departments to establish department-level offices to coordinate Public Lands Service Corps activities within those agencies that administer eligible service lands. Modeled on the existing Youth Conservation Corps program, this new program would fund eligible conservation activities on public lands that include: 1) assisting in historical and cultural research, museum curatorial work, oral history projects, documentary photography, and activities that support the creation of public works of art related to public lands; and 2) construction, repair, rehabilitation and maintenance of roads, trails, campgrounds, and other visitor facilities, and employee housing, historic sites and structures.

The House Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands will hold a hearing on the bill on April 2nd.
