ALEXANDER STATEMENT ON PASSAGE OF THE 21ST CENTURY COMPETITIVENESS ACT BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Posted on May 21, 2007

“Bart Gordon deserves a lot of credit for putting together and passing a bill to double our investment in basic scientific research and vastly improve the teaching of math and science to our children. This legislation is the way we keep our brainpower advantage so that we don’t wake up twenty years from now and wonder how China and India passed us by. I look forward to working with Bart and Congressman Ralph Hall as we bring together this bill with the Senate’s work on the America COMPETES Act which passed last month.”
