Can anyone point me to the transcripts of Senator Bennett's committee meeting held Friday, 2/5/1999, in which Sec. of Agriculture Dan Glickman and others testified about Y2K and the Food Supply??

Many thanks.

Go to the Department of Agriculture (Ive found that even though youd think of going to the senate web-site first, often these guys post their testimony and transcripts on their own agancy web-site too):

Try under News and Information, Speeches 99 (last updated Feb. 4, 1999)


If you dont find what youre looking for, go to the Senate web-site at:

Usually you can search the Senate site (seems to be hung up today):


Although its better to use the Thomas Locater service -- In the spirit of THOMAS Jefferson, the Library of Congress provides you with searchable information about the U.S. Congress and the legislative process. Search bills, by topic , bill number, or title. Search through and read the text of the Congressional Record for the104th, 105th, and 106th Congresses. Search and find committee reports by topic or committee name.

(Today, however the Thomas locater seems to be hung up too. Drat, its Sunday, and LOC is sometimes closed on the weekends, even on the web-site! (go figure))

Library of Congress -- a vast storehouse for government, and other types of information:

For future use, sometimes, another good place to go for government info and transcripts is the USIA United States Information Agency, Daily Washington file:


You can search their archives at (learn the structures query language to become more effective):


The White House web-site has great icon-oriented links to The Presidents Cabinet: cabinet_links.html

And the Federal Agencies and Commissions: Independent_Agencies/html/independent_links.html

David, with the normal search things down, I cant quite pull up what you want. Sorry.

I have the testimony from the hearing in electronic form around here somewhere, but I would be mildly surprised to see the transcript (not the same thing) online.

Many "transcripts" do show up over at the USIA site.

There are some fairly accurate notes here:

Diane, but not for that Senate committee. Big difference.
