From Demand Progress :
In prior years, public witnesses have been very fortunate to have their voices heard by Congressional appropriations lawmakers and staff.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, House appropriations subcommittees are not holding “in-person” or zoom public witness testimony this year.
Demand Progress wanted to ensure that people who have devoted much time and analysis to their testimony be heard. This video features a dozen presenters who touch on a wide range of issues that otherwise would have testified to Congressional appropriators in person. Each presenter had 5 minutes to discuss their request.
