Ogmius Newsletter

Ogmius Exchange

In this edition of Ogmius David Goldston, Republican Chief of Staff for the House Committee on Science, offers an upbeat perspective on the state of science policy in the nation’s capitol, highlighting congressional interest in issues such as technologies to reduce U.S. dependency on foreign oil and mitigate the impacts of climate change, new pollution regulations governing emissions of fine particles, new risk assessment guidelines proposed by the Office of Management and Budget, the balance between science and security, and agency-specific science policy questions.

We invited David Goldston’s piece as an opportunity to respond to an article by Robert Palmer, Democratic Staff Director of the Committee on Science, U.S. House of Representatives, 1993 – 2004, about the current state of science policy in Congress titled “Science Policy: The Victim of Partisan Politics” featured in the July 2005 edition of Ogmius.
