I don't believe this will actually help. The feds do not have a good track record for being able to improve any system, especially if it envolves nature, IMO. There is also a strong influence from monsanto leadership in this administration. I expect that they will recommend creating the ultimate honey bee by combining the genetic material from the honey bee, cockroach, and monarch butterfly. This creates a pollinator that is inherently resiliant enough to survive the nuclear holocaust and is able to travel great distances to pollinate crops. Unfortunately, the honey is not particularly palatable. The administration has a solution to replace the honey. There is a modified high fructose corn syrup product that tastes a little like honey and only has a few side effects.
The real solution needs to come from the people and a change in how we interact with the earth. Its about philosophy and the resulting actions, not legislation.
I am a big skeptic that our government will do anything to help the bees. IMO, they are more interested in making sure that their political campaign contributions from the giant global corporate elites are preserved. The global corporate elites will not tolerate a report containing the truth about their unsustainable practices. Thus, anything the government task force published will likely be biased in favor of corporate influences such as Monsanto or Chem-Ag.

Here's another article about how the CCD epidemic. "Spokane Council Votes to Quit Using Neonicotinoids on City Property". It looks like Washington is leading the charge.
