The Oversight and Investigations subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, chaired by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), is holding a hearing titled “Efforts to Transfer America’s Leading Edge Science to China” at 3 pm EDT today. (The hearing will be webcast on the committee’s site and also carried on NASA TV.) The witnesses at the hearing include NASA administrator Charles Bolden, who will likely be asked about the agency’s adherence to a provision in the final FY2011 spending bill that prohibits the use of NASA funds for any sort of cooperation with China. He will be testifying on the same panel as White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) director John Holdren. OSTP is subject to the same prohibition but ran afoul of the law when hosted meetings with Chinese officials in May at a cost of $3,500, money members of Congress, backed by a GAO report, argue should not have been spent. Thus, Holdren is likely to get far more attention (and also take fire) from members of the committee than Bolden.
