Editor’s Note: President Trump’s Executive Order on Evaluating and Improving the Utility of Federal Advisory Committees is available here.
From: E & E News
More than half of EPA’s science advisory committees could be vulnerable to repeal by the end of the fiscal year under an executive order released Friday.
Trump’s order also caps the total number of advisory bodies across the government at 350. That’s a sharp decrease from approximately 1,000 total committees at federal agencies at any given time, according to the General Services Administration.
