A little more than a year after President Trump's election, hundreds of government posts remain unfilled. Of the 612 key positions requiring Senate confirmation, 258 have no nomination at all, including in the field of science and technology. That has raised some concern in Silicon Valley.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with Recode's Tony Romm (@TonyRomm) about the positions.

This segment aired on November 14, 2017.
