Quick Hit: Hillary Clinton Will Restore the OTA

Kudos to Clinton, who pledges to restore the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) if elected! According to Clinton:
Whether it's stem cell research or Plan B Contraception or pollution or global warming or the safety of our food or the quality of our air -- all too often, ideology has replaced facts, and truth has been the first casualty... Way back in the 1990s, the White House had an Office of Technology Assessment that was charged with just one task: telling us the truth about science... It's time we put this office back in business, because our citizens should have the information they need about the issues that affect them.
Preach it!
