2010 AAAS Philip Hauge Abelson Award presented to the Honorable Rush Holt, Ph.D., for supporting science in Congress
Date:2/16/2011

ers, R-Mich., a 2002 Philip Hauge Abelson Award winner, as the second research physicist ever elected to Congress. His committee memberships include Education and Labor; Natural Resources; and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He has advocated for scientists in the public and private sectors as well as students of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

As a member of Congress, Rep. Holt has been a champion for research and development in the sciences. He supported the America COMPETES Act, which authorizes necessary investments in research, development, and education to keep America competitive in the new global economy. He also testified before the House Budget Committee in support of the President's fiscal year 2009 budget increases for National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energy Office of Science, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Rep. Holt proposed budget increases for agencies facing flat or declining budgets, including National Institutes of Health (NIH), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Department of Agriculture. Additionally, he worked with the House leadership to include funding for research and development in the supplemental budget bill for fiscal year 2008, preventing layoffs of scientists at national labs sponsored by the Department of Energy.

In 2004, Rep. Holt co-founded the bipartisan Congressional Research and Development Caucus which has brought in experts from the Department of Energy Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Brazilian Ministry of Mines and Energy, and the Georgia Research Alliance on issues ranging from modernizing the electric grid, improving the U.S. technology economy, and bio-fuels. The caucus currently has 55 members from both parties.

Rep. Holt has engaged the private sector to encourage business innovation by introducing the Create Jobs by Expanding the R&D Tax Credit Act to temporarily increase the R&D tax credit for two years
