Joint Budget Committee. The bill codifies the existing governor's commission on community service, which was created through executive order. The commission was created pursuant to the federal 'National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993' and allows the state to receive grants, allotments, and service positions under the act. The commission consists of at least 15, but not more than 20, members and is charged with implementing programs and administering funds received from the corporation for national and community service. The commission is established in the office of the lieutenant governor and receives staff and administrative support from that office. The bill authorizes the commission to receive gifts, grants, and donations to fulfill its functions.
