Hearings, scheduled and cancelled

The space subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee has a hearing scheduled for this afternoon on “National Imperatives for Earth Science Research”. This hearing looks to be similar to a House Science and Technology Committee hearing on the topic in February.

One hearing that had been scheduled for today but was cancelled yesterday afternoon was one by the Investigations and Oversight subcommittee of the House Science and Technology Committee about the investigation of NASa Inspector General Robert Cobb. The subcommittee chairman, Rep. Brad Miller, cancelled the hearing after the administration agreed to turn over a report on the investigation to Congress by April 2. Miller planned to hold the hearing to issue subpoenas to key officials to testify about the investigation.
