Washington D.C. – House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chairman Ralph M. Hall (R-TX) today released a summary of the Committee’s activities and accomplishments in the 112th Congress. The document was delivered to Members of the Committee before the holiday recess to highlight their efforts over the past two years providing strong oversight of taxpayer resources.

“This Committee’s important jurisdiction over our nation’s civilian research and development efforts is critical for advancing innovation, growing our economy, and improving the quality of life of all Americans,” Chairman Hall wrote.  “Sustained prudent investments in science and technology fuel innovation and contribute to economic growth.  The Committee has focused on strong oversight in order to ensure that taxpayer-funded programs are efficient and effective. Despite a constrained budget environment, federal investments in fundamental basic research have remained a top priority.  These investments, along with a renewed focus on improving and promoting STEM education, will allow our nation to remain a global leader in science, space, and technology.”
