I am writing this post five minutes following the submission of my third and final FYI bulletin. The bulletin covers the Biological and Environmental Research Office’s contentious, long-standing low-dose radiation research program.
On Friday, I submitted my second draft of the House Science Committee wildfire science bulletin. While I was waiting for the next round of edits, I delved into bill summaries that I had to set aside several weeks ago when I was unable to locate them online.
Last Tuesday marked an important milestone of my time at FYI: the half-way point. I sampled several policy analyst tasks this week. While I have continued writing science policy articles/blurbs, I now spend more time compiling and graphing relevant data from federal agencies.
I had an excellent time this week going through the editing process for my first FYI bulletin about the House Science Committee Ocean-Shot hearing. Bulletins contain between 750 and 1,500 words and typically cover three to four topics in depth.
