Governor Schwarzenegger has signed AB573, a bill that will allow the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST) to pay the stipends of PhD-level fellows placed in the California Legislature.

The fellowship program will provide unbiased, non-partisan science and technology expertise for policymakers when they want it, to be used to help in their decision-making. The program has been modeled after the successful 35-year-old federal Science & Technology Policy Fellows Program, administered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
