SPIE Volunteers Urge Congress to Boost Jobs, Economy through Photonics Support

rship in science and technology. Government export rules have driven high-tech jobs abroad and have made U.S. companies uncompetitive in the global marketplace.

  •     Eliminating restrictions on government-employee travel to scientific conferences. Regulations released in a May 2012 OMB (Office of Management and Budget) memorandum are being applied inconsistently and limit federal participation in scientific and technical conferences, impeding the dissemination of research that results in useful innovation and imposing adverse long-term consequences on national competitiveness.
  • SPIE volunteers included:

    • Dan Christensen (New York)
    • Olivia Rae Fehlberg (Arizona)
    • Ben Franta (Iowa/Massachusetts)
    • Thomas Koch (Arizona)
    • Sara Landau Lampen (Arizona)
    • Robert Lieberman (California)
    • Jim McNally (New Mexico)
    • Kaye Rowan (Arizona).

    The volunteers said they were pleased with the results of their visits and the reception they received on Capitol Hill. Members and staff were generally in agreement that now is a critical time for the U.S. to be prioritizing investments in science and innovation and that while control of spending is important, funding for R&D and for STEM education are important ways to grow the economy.

    "I appreciate the preparations by SPIE to support those of us working in photonics to succinctly bring our message to our representatives in Congress,” said Jim McNally, director of operations at Applied Technology Associates. “The background materials and coaching tips provided really help us to clearly and concisely articulate the critical priorities to support our nation
