I think this issue deserves a much wider audience in the Peace Corps community and I would like to report on these hearings in detail but will unable to get to Washington DC to attend them.
1. Are the hearings going to be televised on CSpan? Could someone contact Congressman Poe and ask him if they could be televised on Cspan?
2. If they won’t be televised, could someone attedning the hearings please record the hearings and send them to me. There is a good, inexpensive application for the iPhone called iProRecorder that turns the iPhone into a tape recorder and the files can be saved and emailed.
3. Could someone attending the hearings please collect the prepared “Statements for the Record” and send them to me. Could someone ask each of the speakers to send an electronic copy of their statements to me.
