stifling bureaucracies So it’s no great surprise that the government’s oversight of campus-based research is larded with requirements that are inefficient redundant and simply make no sense Periodic attempts to streamline the process haven’t been very successful But this year influential lawmakers from both parties are hoping to make a significant dent in the problem by tying the issue to broader pieces of legislation moving through Congress One of those bills should advance this week in fact as a Senate panel is expected on Wednesday to approve a measure that includes substantial language aimed at giving researchers some regulatory relief The bill—which is officially known as the American Innovation and Competitiveness Act (S 3084)—would promote research innovation and science education at the National Science Foundation (NSF) the Department of Commerce and across federal agencies But it offers a convenient legislative vehicle to address regulatory reform Other bills that address the topic focus on shortening the time from discovery to treatment in the US health care system including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or on tweaking specific federal regulations Generally just a small portion of each bill deals with the oversight of academic research But the broader legislation gives the cause much more visibility—and a greater chance of success—than it might otherwise enjoy as a stand-alone issue That’s important when you’re trying to change rules governing the partnership that the federal government and universities forged during World War II The corpus of regulations has increased manifold over the decades to the point where many expert panels have warned the partnership itself is at risk The most recent such report from the US National Academies of Sciences Engineering and Medicine recommends creating an independent quasi-governmental body that would have the authority to tackle the regulatory problem head-on Such a Research Policy Board the report argues would be able to head off problems before they arise as well as remove current logjams and adjudicate conflicts In the Senate Senator Lamar Alexander (R–TN) who chairs the Senate health and education panel has been working on health care legislation that collectively is called the 21st Century Cures Act He asked the Academies’s committee to deliver a preliminary copy of its report last fall so that its recommendations might inform his work And he liked the idea of a research policy board so much that he inserted it into legislation (S 2742) that his committee approved by voice vote this spring Alexander’s board would have outside members and it would have the ability to form panels to carry out studies But unlike the academy’s recommendation it would serve an advisory role with the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Given the committee’s jurisdiction however the bill would only affect researchers funded by NIH and other agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services In the House of Representatives last Friday Representative Daniel Lipinski (D–IL) introduced a stand-alone bill (HR 5583) that would also create a Research Policy Board It would be housed within OMB specifically within its rulemaking arm called the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) Although the federal membership on Lipinski’s board would be limited to representatives from NIH NSF and the Department of Defense the board would be chaired by the president’s science adviser and an associate OIRA administrator for academic regulatory affairs a position created to oversee the health of the federal-academic research partnership Lipinski’s bill has a Republican co-sponsor Representative Randy Hultgren (IL) But it faces an uphill struggle to get out of the House science committee much less get a vote on the House floor The House has already passed another bill that touches on regulatory relief for researchers In May 2015 on a voice vote lawmakers approved a bipartisan bill (HR 1119) from the science committee that would simply create a working group within the interagency National Science and Technology Council within the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to review existing federal policies The two-page bill is one of several pieces of legislation that the science committee’s chairman Representative Lamar Smith (R–TX) has shepherded through the House as components of a reauthorization of the America COMPETES Act an expired 2013 law governing policies at NSF the National Institute of Standards and Technology and OSTP As such it serves more as a marker of interest in the topic than as a detailed road map for legislators to follow Senate bill takes firm stance Tomorrow the Senate commerce and science committee is scheduled to take up its version of a COMPETES reauthorization and the bipartisan legislation (S 3084) contains a section devoted to regulatory relief In fact the bill offers arguably the most compelling argument for change “It is the sense of Congress that administrative burdens faced by researchers may be reducing the return on investment of federally funded research and development” To prove its point the bill cites surveys in which federally funded scientists say that 42% of the time they devote to a grant is spent on administrative duties including writing up their results submitting grant applications and supervising students and postdocs in their lab (The statistic is often erroneously reported as administrative duties taking up 42% of all their working hours) The bill would create a working group chaired jointly by OMB and OSTP that would consult regularly with the academic research community and have the power to carry out studies and recommend policy changes There’s no policy board but the bill’s co-sponsors Senators Cory Gardner (R–CO) and Gary Peters (D–MI) borrowed liberally from the Academies report’s suggestion to conduct several pilot projects aimed at cutting down on the amount of time federally funded researchers spend on administrative tasks Many of the pilots are in response to pleas from researchers to simplify the grant application process which they see as a waste of time because low success rates have made their odds so poor So the bill calls for greater reliance on preproposals withholding the nonresearch components of a grant proposal until reviewers have given it a thumbs up and creating a centralized database with the biosketches of applicants so that information doesn’t have to be recreated for every agency Larry Faulkner the former president of the University of Texas Austin who chaired the Academies panel says he’s pleased that so many legislators have found the report useful And although he stands behind its call for an independent board he refuses to get caught in the middle of a congressional debate over how best to attain the goal of easing the regulatory burden on academics “The committee deliberated extensively to reach its recommendations concerning the Research Policy Board and it conveyed in Part 1 of its report the structural arrangements that the committee deems best suited to an improved regulatory environment” says Faulkner a chemist by training “At the same time the committee anticipated in its report that the details of implementation would properly be subject to additional deliberation in the public and legislative processes required to realize a new forum The committee fully respects the workings of Congress in this process” It’s not certain which if any of the proposals might eventually become law But it is clear that after years of labor with little to show research lobbyists have convinced federal lawmakers it is time to take some bold steps to deal

yoga adding tongue firmly in cheek that his guru had told him that those who know yoga can do padmasana “Have you seen him (Modi) doing padmasana” he asked The intention seems to have been to project the Prime Minister as insincere And he took repeated digs at Modi’s initiatives and the unique names of his government’s schemes But the undertone of his speech at the Congress convention here was clear: criticise demonetisation The issue of domentisation has to be kept alive which he like his party has realised is perhaps the game changer that they were desperately looking for The demonetisation pot has to be kept on boil at least until the assembly elections And the strategy is to target Modi and Modi alone Rahul accused him of centralizing all power and taking decisions based on his whims and fancies He also claimed that ‘acche din’ would come only when the Congress returns to power in 2019 He said Modi is the most ridiculed prime minister in the history of India Rahul said every economist of repute has rubbished demonetisation which he said was an incompetent and badly thought out move He also poked fun at the PM holding a broom when he posed for photographs for

Make in Maharashtra and it has helped to restore the confidence of foreign investors in the most leading state of the country Whether it is Foxconn General Motors Microsoft et al are here for serious business with India We have tapped investments through collaborations in automobiles sector infrastructure including roads coastal and aviation and electronics Q Questions have often been raised about realistic investments from Foxconn pronouncing $5 billion A I have dealt with them and believe they are going to be the game changer I visited their manufacturing unit in China which has employed 5 lakh people They reckon Maharashtra is the best destination for business because of skills and human resources low cost and labour Moreover my government is not dealing with soft gloves We know our

related to labour where we could have taken quick decisions But otherwise we are all set to end the permit raj system in state Now instead of 108 permissions you would require just 15 to 20 to open a

years we will plan roads upgradation and city to town and village connectivity for which we have earmarked Rs 30000 crore funds Roads and ports development is also integral for boosting the urban and rural economy Q Your comment on sustained negative growth in agriculture sector A When 25000 villages are reeling under drought for the last three years out of 40000 it remains the biggest concern Through “jalyukta shivar” water conservation programmes we intend to address the critical sector on war footing In the next three years we would have completed 35 to 4 lakh projects with additional
