Science policy hearings set



A congressional task force that will review government science policy has scheduled a slate of hearings for the rest of 1985. T h e Task Force on Science Policy, established in mid-1984 by the House Committee on Science and Technology, will conduct the first such comprehensive review by the House in more than 20 years.

“These hearings will allow us to visit with a large number of preeminent scientists, engineers, and policymakers representing many disciplines and viewpoints. They will help provide the task force with a broad picture of U.S. science policy,” said Rep. Manuel Lujan (R-N.M.), the task force's ranking Republican. Rep. Don Fuqua (D-Fla.) is chairman of both the task force and the Committee on Science and Technology.
