A friend gave me an article as follows:

"Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., introduced legislation Tuesday to fund research into the die-off of millions of honeybees in the United States.

The Pollinator Protection Act would authorize $89 million in federal funding for a research and grant program at the U.S. Department of Agriculture over five years for work related to maintaining the bee population as well as native pollinators."

It goes on a bit more, but what do you all think about this?Huh Do you think something like this could pass?Huh I was very excited about this.

I like the idea, but not sure if it the bill would pass.

It's a shame something like had to happen to wake someone up.
In the past there has been so many budget cuts that affected funds and some thing were closed down and others cut..
 "If" it passes it will be the best thing that has happened for the Honey Bees and other polinaters in quiet some time.

probably most of the money goes to CA.  guess that's ok if it really goes for research, but somehow money from the government never quite seems to get to where it's supposed to be.....

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
