ASPET Urges Prompt Consideration for White House OSTP Nominee

July 18, 2022

Joining 33 other scientific societies, ASPET issued a letter on July 8, 2022 to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation to promptly consider the nominee for the position of Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).  With the White House nominating Dr. Arati Prabhakar for Director of the OSTP on June 21, 2022, ASPET encourages the Senate Committee to consider the nomination promptly considering the OSTP’s essential role in America’s scientific enterprises.  The OSTP is charged with providing the President and staff within the Executive Office of the President advice on the effects of science and technology on domestic and international affairs.  Given the office’s importance, ASPET and other societies believe it is imperative that the Senate promptly considers an individual once nominated by the President.
