Abstract

The Governor's Science Advisory Council (GSAC) was established by executive order in April 1977 to provide objective scientific advice and information to the Governor or the state agencies. A major problem in science advising to government at all levels is the credibility of information sources. The controversy concerning a possible ban on the use of nitrite in the curing of meat products provided an opportunity for the GSAC to demonstrate its potential as an unbiased representative of the scientific community.
