STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 15159 This legislation will recognize the accomplishments of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the state of Idaho and designate March 31 as Civilian Conservation Corps Recognition Day. In the recovery from the Great Depression, programs that promoted the values of work and skills development helped turn the country around. Almost 28,000 men worked in the CCC camps of Idaho earning, learning and providing infrastructure we still are using today. By this resolution, Idaho joins other states in recognizing these men and the Civilian Conservation Corps. FISCAL NOTE There is no fiscal impact. Contact Name: Rep.
