In an effort to tackle national priorities and help young Americans strengthen their communities and our nation while reducing the burden of student debt, U.S. Senators Chris Coons (D-DE), Jack Reed (D-RI), and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) introduced the America’s Call To Improve Opportunities Now (ACTION) for National Service Act.  The bill would increase opportunities for service across the country and provide young Americans with the chance to select a service program in a variety of fields.  In exchange for their national service, students would get help paying for college.
