We are signing a contract with the American people that promises their tax dollars will be spent wisely.”

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.), Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today chaired the Committee’s first-ever crosscutting look at innovation.

“It’s not an understatement to argue that federal investment in research is an investment in America’s future. This realization has led me, and many of my colleagues, to consider some difficult question,” stated Chairwoman Mikulski.

“I agree reducing the budget deficit is important, but are we being so austere that we are limiting our future growth? And as one of the greatest countries in the world, are we so preoccupied with making budget cuts that we’re heading towards an innovation deficit as well?”
