I didn't see anything in the text about making service mandatory. Did I miss something?

I'm more concerned about increasing discretionary spending in these times when we should be cutting back. This is exactly the kind of program that should be cut right now, not expanded.

Besides, why do people need grant money to do community service anyway? I thought the whole point of service was voluntary sacrifice of personal time, talents, and funds.
