On behalf of the American Conservative Union, I urge you to vote “NO” on the Zoe Lofgren bill, H.R. 1891, creating the position of Science Laureate of the United States, when it comes up on the suspension calendar on Tuesday.
This bill has not been approved by the House Science Committee, and by putting it on the suspension calendar, there is no chance for amendment or adequate debate.
Although the bill seems innocuous, it will provide the opportunity for President Obama to make an appointment of someone (or more than one person) who will share his view that science should serve political ends, on such issues as climate change and regulation of greenhouse gases. The bill allows the appointment of up to three Science Laureates simultaneously. The bill as written also gives President Obama the power to decide the term of the Science Laureate up to two years. None of these provisions can be amended under Suspension of the Rules.
This bill is a needless addition to the long list of presidential appointments and should at least be considered in committee before being acted on without amendment. Please vote “NO” on H.R. 1891, the Science Laureate bill.
