  • "So, I think one our important roles is...trying to diffuse and make things a little less personal and a little less one-side-versus-the-other where possible. One of our real successes is anytime we hear a legislator on the floor speaking to their colleagues...refer to a fact or figure that we know was something that we provided them. I think we feel, procedurally, that that is a healthier place to be discussing what is out there in the research ecosystem." -- JOSH MUELLER, PhD, deputy director, MOST Policy Initiative June 28, 2022
