The U.S. House of Representatives today passed the American COMPETE Act, a bill to promote American technological leadership in cutting-edge fields including quantum computing and unmanned vehicles. Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) is a cosponsor of the bill. He issued the following statement:
“America must maintain its primacy in developing technologies to solve the challenges of the 21st century. Our national security and economic prospects depend on it.
“The American COMPETE Act, which I cosponsored, will keep our country moving forward in key areas of technological development. It includes legislation I introduced to encourage quantum computing and also supports the unmanned delivery services that have broken new ground in the Ninth District. I am glad to see it advance with bipartisan support in the House.”
