COMPETES Passes Senate Committee With Bipartisan Support

(Washington, DC) – Today, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation passed their version of the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010. The bill, S. 3605, passed with bipartisan support.

Chairman Bart Gordon (D-TN) offered the following statement: 
“I applaud Senator Rockefeller for his work moving this important piece of legislation. The legislation that the Senators voted on moved the funding levels in line with what passed the House in May. 
I applaud their work, balancing importance of these investments with realities of our current fiscal environment. This pragmatic approach—and the bipartisan manner with which it passed—will go a long way toward getting this important piece of legislation signed into law, and protecting our nation’s scientific and economic leadership. I look forward to working with Senator Rockefeller and Senator Hutchison as the process moves along.”
