The Federation of American Scientists has launched a new online archive that collects the reports of the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA). OTA was a research arm of Congress tasked with providing members with the best available scientific and technical information on emerging issues. Unfortunately, OTA was abolished in 1995 as a result of Newt Gingrich's Contract with America.
The online archive is a central collection of the office's reports. The website will also regularly provide updates on congressional efforts to resurrect OTA.back to Blog
