Austin American-Statesman - - MORE OF TODAY’S TOP NEWS -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has moved to fill just one of 46 key sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy po­si­tions that help the gov­ern­ment counter risks rang­ing from chem­i­cal and bi­o­log­i­cal at­tacks to ris­ing seas, a Wash­ing­ton Post anal­y­sis has found. Trump’s first nom­i­nee to one of these top sci­ence posts, named on Fri­day, is physi­cian Scott Got­tlieb for Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion com­mis­sioner. With this move, Trump found a can­di­date for this job ear­lier than Barack Obama did in 2009.
