I know very few of us would be able to jaunt up to D.C. today to see President Obama sign into law the defense spending bill and the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Act included with that bill. And even if we managed to make it to Washington, it isn’t likely that they’d let us in the White House for the signing or the reception planned for later in the day.
But we can watch as history is made. The White House Web site’s live video streaming schedule for today includes the signing ceremony. Go here to see it.
And as David Taffet noted in an earlier post, the signing takes place at 1:30 CST, followed by a reception at 5 p.m. CST .
