U.S. Congress considers the America COMPETES Act

Just last week, Senators Warner, Klobuchar and LaMieux amended the America COMPETES Act to include a long-term study on the current levels of innovation and competiveness in the U.S. compared to other countries and develop a national strategy for innovation for the next decade. 


The Obama administration has laid out its priorities to recommit America to its status as a leader in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Keeping America at the forefront of science, technology, medicine and clean energy will require a bipartisan commitment to policies that encourage research and innovation.


HP will continue to discuss the issue as Congress considers the America COMPETES Act, as well as other opportunities to support the recruiting and training math and science teachers, establishing partnerships between federal science facilities and high schools, and increasing federal support for the research the information economy needs.
