Science and Technology in Presidential Policymaking - A Proposal.
National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC.
The Committee on Science and Technology of the National Academy of Sciences recommends that a Council for Science and Technology be established as a staff agency in the Executive Office of the President. The Council would consist of at least three full-time members drawn from the sciences, engineering, and related fields. They would be appointed by the President, with the counsel and consent of the Senate, to advise the government regarding the best use of science and technology in the development of public policy. Among the areas in which scientific and technological advice was deemed necessary were weapons research, energy resources development, and pollution control. The proposal also includes a brief history of the cooperation and communication which has existed between the government and the scientific community. (MLH)
