Washington DC— The Federation of American Scientists joined 16 prominent scientific and engineering groups to ask all Congressional candidates seven questions on the science and technology policies that affect all of our lives.
The November election will be a critical moment for science and technology policy in the United States. Voters must know where the candidates stand on issues such as climate change, the environment, and soaring energy prices.
“These issues affect all American's and the general public deserves answers on where the candidates stand,” said Michael Stebbins, Director of Biology Policy at the Federation of American Scientists.
Innovation 2008 is a voter education initiative from Scientists and Engineers for America (SEA) to make science and technology a prominent part of the 2008 elections.
