what does "it" mean in the sentence?

Postby pdh0224 » Mon Sep 27, 2004 2:30 pm

Dear teacher,

Mr. Goss has not otherwise outlined a clear agenda for the new job, whose responsibilities include not only running the C.I.A., but also nominal oversight of the broader network of 15 intelligence agencies. Under the broad restructuring now being debated in Congress, the future of the post is in some doubt, with most reform plans calling for it to be downgraded to that of C.I.A. director alone, subordinate to a new national intelligence director.

Q : What does "it" refer to? I think "the broad restructuring" or "the reform". What do you think?



All the best, :)

It refers to 'post' (=job).
