House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Ranking Member Frank Lucas issued a statement tonight on the announcement by Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer that the House and Senate will begin conferencing competitiveness legislation.
Thank you, Chairman Foster, Ranking Member Obernolte, Chairwoman Stevens, and Ranking Member Waltz, for holding today’s joint subcommittee hearing on balancing open science with securing the U.S. research enterprise from foreign influence and theft.
Good morning, Chairman Foster, Chairwoman Stevens, and Ranking Member Waltz – thank you for convening today’s joint subcommittee hearing to examine the changing landscape of research security. It has been over three years since this Committee’s first hearing on this topic.
(Washington, DC) Today, House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology Ranking Member Frank Lucas released a statement criticizing the massive, partisan reconciliation package forced through the Committee today on a party-line vote.
Thank you, Chairwoman Johnson, for holding today’s markup. The bills we’re considering today are a continuation of the important and bipartisan work we’ve been doing on American scientific competitiveness.
Today, the House Science, Space, and Technology passed two landmark bills to double down on federal investment in American research and development. The bills significantly increase funding for the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science.
Thank you, Chairwoman Johnson. This amendment strikes and replaces the text of H.R. 2225, the NSF for the Future Act, to incorporate stakeholder feedback on the underlying bill, add bipartisan Member priorities, and make technical changes to the text. I’d like to thank the Chairwoman and her staff for working with us to get these changes finalized.
