Science Democrats Press for Scientific Integrity

Yesterday, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) and Congressman Brian Baird (D-WA) released a General Accounting Office report on ways to improve the integrity of the Scientific Advisory Panel appointment process.

Representatives Johnson and Baird also released a letter to the President asking him to instruct executive offices and agencies to carry out all the recommendations included in the GAO report.  GAO has very specific steps that should be embraced by the Office of Government Ethics, the General Services Administration and the agencies themselves to reduce conflicts of interest and guarantee more balanced panels.
