This is older news but Chuck Schumer back in 2019 proposed a bill, The Endless Frontiers Act (S. 3832), that would rebrand the National Science Foundation and give it $100 billion over the course of 5 years to research emerging technologies like AI, quantum computing, 5G, robotics, and biotechnology. He proposed this bill back then to try to get the US up with China on technology. But there was no support from the former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell back then.
Two years later, with Sen. Schumer to become the Senate Majority Leader next week, this community needs to find a way to push that bill out again of the shadows and get him to put it up for a vote. E-Mail or call his office regarding this specific bill (S. 3832) and why you find it an important priority in the new upcoming US government. His public email and phone number are below so please use those resources to urge him to bring forward the bill again.
