US House passes bill to regulate Peace Corps

The House of Representatives has passed the Health, Safety, and Security of Peace Corps Volunteers Act of 2004 [PDF], which will create an ombudsman and a more independent inspector general for the Peace Corps. Peace Corps Director Gaddi Vasquez has objected to the bill, saying that the ombudsman position is redundant and that the inspector general currently has all the independence he needs.
