The House of Representatives has approved two resolutions related to the nation’s scientific enterprise. One of the resolutions celebrates the 60th anniversary of the National Science Foundation (NSF). The other resolution recognizes National Lab Day, a joint effort between educators and scientists that aims to enhance inquiry-based learning in the classroom. The resolutions passed nearly unanimously. The only dissenting votes were cast by Representatives Paul Broun, MD (R-GA) and Ron Paul, MD (R-TX). Rep. Broun is a member of the House Science and Technology Committee, which oversees NSF.
