(Washington, DC)  U.S. House Science Committee Ranking Member Rep. Bart Gordon (D-TN) released a letter that he sent to NASA Administrator Dr. Michael Griffin today regarding Dr. Griffin's actions to reaffirm the importance of scientific openness at NASA.

Rep. Gordon contacted the Administrator nearly two weeks ago seeking answers and urging investigation into claims of silencing raised by NASA Goddard scientist Dr. James Hansen. 

Dr. Griffin responded to Rep. Gordon stating his desire to resolve the matter promptly and thoroughly - a welcome change, Gordon noted, from the responses of other federal agencies to similar problems.

The Gordon letter to Administrator Griffin is attached.
