I'm not sure how useful it will be to have persons on such short 
notice attend, as there is CSPAN and the written testimony, though as 
of today the documents and witness lists are still empty.

What I wish ALAC had was a statement on issues of its concern which it 
was prepared to submit to inform the Subcommittee, regardless of its 
partisan composition, as the ALAC advice to the Board is not always 
observable in its effect informing the Board, and "the public interest 
does not end where the water begins", to borrow an American political 
metaphore, and all Advisory duties extinguished when the Chair or the 
CEO or the designated lobbyist reports to a national oversight body.
