MAJOR PROVISIONS OF THE UNIVERSAL NATIONAL SERVICE ACT OF 2011:

The Universal National Service Act Of 2011, originally introduced as the nation prepared for the invasion of Iraq, would provide for:

• A national service obligation—either military or civilian--for every citizen and permanent resident, male and female, of the U.S., aged 18 to 25

• Persons may inducted to perform military service only if a declaration of war is in effect, or if the President declares a national emergency necessitating the induction of persons to perform military service and immediately informs Congress of the reasons for the declaration.

• Defines "national service" as either military or civilian service as defined by the President that promotes national or homeland security.

• Give the President the authority to establish the numbers of persons to be selected for national service and the means of selection.

• Directs the President to prescribe the regulations necessary to carry out the act.

• Deferments for education through the age of 24 if they are full time students.

• Deferments may be made for physical or mental disability, or under claims of conscientious objector.


Not sure if this has been covered yet. There is a video of Rangel speaking in the house at this link.

Watching it now and will post more soon.
