StillNeedMoreCoffee (123989) writes ""Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) is drafting legislation that would require the NSF director to certify that research met a number of new criteria. being worked up by Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX), represents the latest—and bluntest—attack on NSF by congressional Republicans seeking to halt what they believe is frivolous and wasteful research being funded in the social sciences. Last month, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) successfully attached language to a 2013 spending bill that prohibits NSF from funding any political science research for the rest of the fiscal year unless its director certifies that it pertains to economic development or national security. Smith's draft bill, called the "High Quality Research Act," would apply similar language to NSF's entire research portfolio across all the disciplines that it supports."

Politics controlling Scientific grants? Not in the country's or the worlds best interest. Rep Smith should hear from the tech/science community before this goes too far."
