Good News from the Holdren Nomination Hearing

The Science blog, covering the confirmation hearing of the President's Science Advisor designate states:
Holdren.....announced his intention to fill the four associate director posts that existed during the Clinton Administration before his predecessor, John Marburger, eliminated positions covering the environment, and national security, and international affairs. He also promised to "reinvigorate" the National Science and Technology Council, an interagency coordinating body that he said has "languished" under the Bush Administration.
Comment: I am very pleased that the international post will be reinvigorated. I also am glad that the National Science and Technology Council is to be strengthened; the president needs the advice of a strong and active advisory panel. JAD
