Scientific Solutions for the People

The Committee on Science, Space, and Technology is taking action to solve today's pressing issues. 

From COVID19 to the climate crisis to American leadership in innovation - our members are working for a better future for all. 

We invite you take a deep dive into some of our priorities for the 117th Congress. 

America COMPETES

Strengthening Global Competition with the America COMPETES Act of 2022

On February 4, the House passed the America Creating Opportunities for Manufacturing, Pre-Eminence in Technology and Economic Strength Act of 2022. The America COMPETES Act makes historic investments to surge production of American-made semiconductors, tackles supply chain vulnerabilities to make more goods in America, bolsters America’s scientific research and technological leadership, and strengthens America’s economic and national security at home and abroad. The America COMPETES Act of 2022 includes transformative, bipartisan legislation from the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.

Acting on Climate Change

Throughout the 117th Congress, the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology acted in the fight against the climate crisis. In this effort we held hearings, drafted and passed legislation, and moved the conversation forward on strong, innovative climate policy. Protecting our planet and serving as stewards for the next generation requires a coordinated effort. We will continue to pursue the Committee’s aggressive climate agenda in 2022.

Strengthening Scientific Integrity

Science does not have a political agenda. As we move forward with policy to better our country and scientific enterprise, we must ensure that federal scientists and agencies are able to do their work free of political interference.

When science is done well, it is because trained professionals can follow the data and subject their findings to rigorous peer review. The scientific breakthroughs of the past year, including the COVID-19 vaccines, have shown the remarkable accomplishments our scientists can achieve when they are supported, work together, and make science-based decisions.

Ensuring Leadership in Science & Technology

Global competition in science and technology has emerged as an urgent bipartisan priority – and we are prepared to meet the challenge of our global competitors.

The Committee invests significant time and effort in understanding cutting edge technologies that will drive innovation and economic growth while protecting our Nation’s intellectual property and security.

The future of science and innovation is in cross-cutting, state of the art research conducted by our federal laboratories, federal scientists, and colleges and universities. Together, we will not only lead the world in innovation, we will also lead the world in solving today’s most pressing scientific and societal challenges.
