Just out in the Jan. issue of Discover magazine ~ in their list of the top 100 science stories of 2007, #20 is called "Fault Line in Science Policy". I'm going to quote from it, because there is no link to it as yet...

...most galling... was an internal order by the Dept. of Commerce in April requiring scientists in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin. to obtain permission before speaking out about matters of "official importance". The order makes "all employee utterance subject to official review".
"It's part of this administrations reluctance to base decisions on information""
