STEM Fund Creation Approved for Immigration Reform Bill

By May 14, 2013Immigration

The NAM is pleased that Senator Hatch’s amendment just passed by voice vote.  The amendment creates a green card fee whose funds will go to the states to focus on STEM education. This concept is also included in the Hatch Klobuchar I-Squared bill also supported by manufacturers. Investing in domestic STEM education is necessary for the success of US manufacturers. We need to improve the domestic pipeline of talent in the STEM fields to secure the next generation of scientists and researchers. We appreciate Senator Hatch and the committees’ strong support for this effort.
