WATCH: Rep. Quayle Questions Administration Re: $1billion National Network of Manufacturing Innovation Program

At Arizona's Politics, we like to try to provide insights into how our elected officials are handling their jobs when the spotlight is not necessarily shining on them.  In this instance, Rep. Ben Quayle (R-CD3) took about five minutes to question an Obama Administration witness about a $1 billion program called the National Network of Manufacturing Innovation.

Quayle started off reading his question of John Holdren, but later parried with him without notes.

Here is C-Span's description of Wednesday's hearing of the House Committee on Science and Technology:
John Holdren testified about programs administered by the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), as well as its roles, responsibilities, operations, management and its function in shaping our national science policy. He said the United States continued to be a global leader in science and innovation, but admitted that a better job needs to be done with STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education. He also spoke about the Obama administration's research and science policies, clean energy and green jobs initiatives, and the restructuring of the U.S. space program.
