Sinema Discusses Federal STEM Investments with Arizona Technology Council

Apr 4, 2022

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema discussed federal investments in STEM with the Arizona Technology Council to further strengthen Arizona’s leadership in technology and innovation.
“Arizona leads the nation in technology and innovation, and I’ll continue partnering with local leaders to further strengthen STEM opportunities in our state and help create the jobs of the future,” said Sinema, a member of the Senate Commerce Committee.
Sinema’s conversation with the Arizona Technology Council focused on the federal government’s investments in STEM education – something Sinema underscored as essential in ensuring Arizona remains a national leader in technology and innovation. As a member of the Senate Commerce Committee, Sinema recognizes Arizona is a hub for growth and innovation, especially in STEM.
Sinema partnered with Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.) to introduce the 21st Century Space Grant Modernization Act – bipartisan legislation that protects education and research funding at Arizona universities. This bipartisan bill ensures Arizona universities receive their fair share of annual funding from NASA and reforms the National Space Grant College and Fellowship program to better support state-based space education and research programs.
