Partisan Lines Drawn on America COMPETES Reauthorization

Originally passed with bipartisan support by Congress in 2007, the America COMPETES Act sought to put selected federal civilian R&D investments on a doubling path in order to sustain U.S. competitiveness in the global economy. Eight years later, in the post-crash environment of federal deficits, budget sequestration and partisan divide, America COMPETES has fallen well short of its original goals. The updated legislation, whose budget authorizations for agency R&D programs expire at year end, is now up for reauthorization, and divergent proposals have been put forward by Republicans and Democrats in the House Science, Space and Technology Committee over how best to proceed.
