When it comes to creating a Department of Science (DoS), House Science Committee chair Robert Walker (R-Pa.) says he is “not looking to create a science dictator here.” Although the details of the new bill are still being ironed out, Walker says the agency, as a singular cabinet agency, would house the National Science Foundation, NASA, the Environmental Protection Agency, the USGS, the White House Office of Science and Technology policy, and the weapons programs of the Department of Energy.
