Coons: “Unstoppable” innovation and research

Coons_062110 

Sen. Chris Coons – from our home state of Delaware – used his first floor speech as a senator to stress the need for research and innovation to ensure the United States remains a global economic leader:

Mr. President, the formula for our economic success has long been the unstoppable combination of an innovative citizenry and investment in cutting-edge research.  This is what generates companies that invent new products, often high-tech and research-driven products, and, along with these, create skilled jobs right here in the United States.
