      From Peace Corps Online (peacecorpsonline.com):

      Senator Chris Dodd (RPCV Dominican Republic) spoke at the ceremony for
      this year's Shriver Award and elaborated on issues he raised at Ron
      Tschetter's hearings. Dodd plans to introduce legislation that may
      include: setting aside a portion of Peace Corps' budget as seed money
      for demonstration projects and third goal activities (after adjusting
      the annual budget upward to accommodate the added expense), more
      volunteer input into Peace Corps operations, removing medical,
      healthcare and tax impediments that discourage older volunteers,
      providing more transparency in the medical screening and appeals
      process, a more comprehensive health safety net for recently-returned
      volunteers, and authorizing volunteers to accept, under certain
      circumstances, private donations to support their development projects.
      He plans to circulate draft legislation for review to members of the
      Peace Corps community and welcomes RPCV comments.
