    Arrow Congressional Hearing on CCD

    This was an email sent out by Mark, the president of the Boulder Beekeepers Assoc. I though others might find the information interesting. I have to work during the broadcast so I guess I'll have to wait 3-6 weeks for the transcripts to be available.

    >>Hello Beekeepers:

    We are about to have our 15 minutes on stage. Congressional hearings this Thursday will focus on the CCD and its potential impact on US Agriculture.

    Thanks to Andy Schwarz, here are the links. You can listen live to the event on the internet by going to the following link (just click below):

    http://agriculture.house.gov/hearings/audio.html

    Further you can read the contents of the hearing and the testimonys after the hearing by clicking on:

    http://agriculture.house.gov/hearings/index.html Click on Hearing Transcripts

    You will be able to submit written testimony but I am not yet certain of the exact procedure. It will be outlined in the Congressional Record. We'll keep you posted.

    Get involved if you can. We have an opportunity to turn a tide that is currently not working in our favor. One good way to get involved is to write letters to our US Representatives. You need to write the Representative from the District in which you reside. This can be done on the internet.

    Cheers,


    Mark<<

    Thanks for posting that. I know what I'm going to be listening to while at work tomorrow.

    Exclamation

    This is in the House and not the Senate??

    I have written Rep. Earl Pomeroy. Lets hope something gets
    done. Funding is needed desperately.

    How do you know what time tomorrow it's on? Did I miss something? I went to the sites and it wasn't obvious what time... I just don't have time to listen to this all day tomorrow.

    Yes, 10am.
    The audio channel should go "on" about 1/2 hour before the
    hearing starts with music so everyone can fumble with their
    favorite audio/video player.

    I will record it, and run the audio through a speech-to-text
    process, in hope of having a quicker transcript than the
    "months later" transcripts provided by the House. No
    promises on this, as I have no idea how much background
    noise there might be. If nothing else, I will zip the audio
    up into a lo-fi compressed file for those who cannot listen
    "live", and put it on the Bee-Quick website
