The House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology drives innovation and research that is critical to ensuring the United States remains the economic and technological leader on the global stage. Originally founded in 1958 to help win the space race, today the Science Committee handles all non-defense and non-health scientific research, as well as conducting oversight for several key scientific

federal agencies such as NASA and the Department of Energy. As we move into the next era of scientific discovery, the House Science Committee remains focused on the future and solving complex problems to enhance our economic and national security for the benefit of all Americans.

This is your Halloween reminder that even Einstein was “spooked” by quantum mechanics. That’s why the Committee is excited to continue its work on quantum science to shed light on the “spooky actions at a distance” that kept Einstein up at night.

During last week’s hearing, Congressman Jay Obernolte questioned U.S. Department of Energy Administrator Michael Regan about apparent conflicts of interest that were only made public because of a freedom of information request. EPA decisions should be based on science, not politics.

Happy Birthday National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) 🥳! Since being formed in 1970, this agency has provided critical weather services to the American people but NEVER received formal statutory authority and remains a part of the Department of Commerce.

We think that at 53 years old, NOAA is old enough to finally move out of the house and become an independent agency, which is why we’re working hard on a bill that does exactly that. Read more here:

While being questioned by Rep. Brian Babin, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan failed to directly address instances of political interference in the rule making process that are contributing to the public’s skepticism of EPA. Public trust must be rebuilt by putting science over special interests. More info here: https://science.house.gov/2023/9/full-committee-hearing-science-and-technology-at-the-epa

The Committee is working to hold bureaucrats accountable for trying to cede regulatory authority to a privately funded foreign entity. Environmental regulations must be based on sound science and subject to congressional oversight, not special interests.

Republicans and energy experts are taking issue with Biden administration regulations that name a specific foreign entity tasked with overseeing emissions targets.
