Making South Florida’s Voice Heard, Ros-Lehtinen Supports Bills to Honor Our Community’s Past and Future

“South Florida deserves to benefit from cutting-edge technology that can only be discovered through diligent and long-term research.”

Miami, Florida – Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen announced her support of two bills that would honor our past while working to construct a better future for South Florida. These two bills are:

  • the American Research and Competitiveness Act of 2014, which would make the research tax credit permanent in order to help foster innovation; and
  • a bill to establish the Commission to Study the Potential Creation of a National Women’s History Museum Act of 2013, which would take the first steps in determining how a National Women’s History Museum could be established. 

Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

“South Florida deserves to benefit from cutting-edge technology that can only be discovered through diligent and long-term research. We should do everything possible to foster innovation, which means ensuring it makes tax sense for those who dedicate themselves to discovery. Additionally, modern-day science would not be where it is without the contributions of many great women, which should not be overlooked. Working toward creating a National Women’s History Museum will help make sure we never forget the trailblazing women who have given so much to our great nation.”
