Any Word on Honeybee Insurance?

It seems so long ago that the Obama Administration put forth their proposal for the 2009 Economic Stimulus Plan. The final copy is available to print and read, but nobody is talking about specifics. They generally point out how tax cuts are the primary focus of the revised bill 0r how the whole thing is “too little too late.”

However, it is nearly impossible to find any further information about the $150 million for honeybee insurance. We already know that the insurance only bailed out livestock farmers and maybe some beekeepers and that no money would go towards scientific research, but was it included in the final bill at all? No one has written about this since mid-February.
