Legislation Introduced to Reauthorize Quantum Research

The previous authorization expired on September 30.

House Science, Space, and Technology Committee members proposed a bill that would reauthorize the U.S. development of quantum research, funding for which expired at the end of September. Committee chair Frank Lucas of Oklahoma and ranking member Zoe Lofgren of California introduced the National Quantum Initiative Act in the hopes of supporting U.S. technological competition with China.

“The 2018 National Quantum Initiative Act enabled the U.S. science and technology enterprise to progress tremendously in this critical technology,” Representative Lofgren stated. “We must now build upon these original investments to ensure the United States can remain the world leader in quantum — this bill will do that and more.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Representatives Lucas and Lofgren as they promote the legislation to support quantum research.
  • For members of Congress to be discerning as they determine appropriations for the fiscal year.
