The Ongoing Stimulus Mystery

A little investigative journalism goes a long way. It turns out that the Honeybee Insurance disaster program never even really existed. No wonder it was so hard to find anything about this in the bills or the press. Mysteriously, this harshly criticized element of the stimulus bill never appeared in the House version of the bill nor the Senate version nor the appropriate Senate Appropriations Committee Report of 2009 (It’s supposed to detail the disaster program on pg. 102. See for yourself).

Curiously, the 2008 Senate Appropriations Committee Report did mention the risks and dangers of the CCD problem and how it was spreading.
