President Donald Trump issued an executive order on Friday (June 14) to cut back the number of advisory committees by at least a third by the end of September, according to a statement from the White House. The federal advisory committee system is the formal structure for government agencies to seek advice from experts including scientists. The number of science advisory committees decreased by 20 percent between 2016 and 2017, and committee membership declined by 14 percent, according to a study by the Union for Concerned Scientists (UCS). "Now they're removing the possibility of even making decisions based on robust science advice."
