Louise Slaughter Receives the Science Coalition's Champion of Science Award
2/11/2013



The Science Coalition's Champion of Science Award recognizes members of Congress whose actions and votes consistently reflect their belief that basic scientific research, conducted at universities and national labs across the country, is essential to the nation's ability to address pressing issues in health, security, energy and the environment, and additionally, that a strong federally supported basic research enterprise drives innovation that fuels the U.S. economy. Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, who serves New York's 25th district, was selected to receive the award for her commitment to supporting scientific research through federal funding and legislation. She joins a distinguished group of more than 60 current and former members of Congress who have received this award since 1999.
