“The American research enterprise has been deeply impacted by COVID-19 and is facing never-before-seen challenges,” said Ranking Member Frank Lucas of the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. “Without targeted and immediate support, we’ll lose valuable R&D and fall behind on scientific and technological progress and could begin losing our STEM workforce pipeline.
Thank you, Chairwoman Johnson.
As we continue to fight COVID-19, I appreciate that we’re focusing our hearing time on this pandemic.
Environmental justice, public health, and extreme weather are very serious topics that deserve our attention. It’s well documented that low-income and minority communities are adversely affected by these issues. And while I appreciate the effort to better understand why and how that is, I think the structure and scope of today’s hearing doesn’t give us the chance to focus on potential solutions.
