    Key point:

    Rather than targeting only grants in the social sciences, Smith is reportedly preparing a bill that would revise the criteria for all grants funded by the agency. According to ScienceInsider, the bill would require the NSF director to certify that every grant met the following conditions:

    - The grant must "advance the national health, prosperity, or welfare, and... secure the national defense by promoting the progress of science"

    - It must also be "the finest quality, groundbreaking, and answer questions or solve problems that are of utmost importance to society at large"

    - The grant should not be "duplicative of other research projects being funded by the Foundation or other Federal science agencies"

    Brilliant stone age strategy.
