Congressman Rosecoe Bartlett, a Republican from Rhode Island, will be giving a special order speech tonight, on the Congressional Record and it should
be broadcast on C-SPAN tonight, May 3rd, 10:30 to 11:30 PM EST.
Congressional speeches don't stick to a strict schedule though so he might not be there at all. It has been pushed back before.
Here is his web page
where he has transcripts and WMV files of his previous speeches
on this topic to the House.
This is important, because he is one of the few elected officials aware of the issue and raising it publicly. In an
with him earlier this week and he was asked, "What was your colleague's
reaction to your speech?" and he said they were surprised, a lot of them had never heard of the idea before.
I urge you to send an email to Bartlett supporting him for raising this important issue with his colleagues, and send one to your own congressman or
your own governments. Better the governments act late than not at all!
