TFAI Urges Congressional Leaders to Prioritize Investments in Research and Development in FY22 Reconciliation Bill

The Task Force on American Innovation, of which AAU is a member, sent a letter urging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to prioritize science and technology research and research infrastructure funding as they finalize the FY22 reconciliation bill.
