IBM Applauds Passage of House Supercomputing Innovation Bill
IBM Applauds Passage of House Supercomputing Innovation Bill
Washington, D.C. (May 20, 2015) – IBM today issued the following statement
commending the U.S. House of Representatives for passing H.R. 874, the American
Super Computing Leadership Act of 2015:
“With passage of this legislation, the United States is one step closer to building a new
generation of high-performance computers that will tackle the challenges of tomorrow
and preserve our country’s lead in the global race to innovate.
Its infusion of research and development funding will unlock new scientific discoveries
with the potential to reshape society for years to come.
We applaud House Science, Space and Technology Committee Chairman Lamar Smith
and Representative Randy Hultgren for guiding this bill to passage, and for recognizing
the crucial role supercomputers play in meeting America’s national security, scientific
and health care needs.
We also commend Senator Lamar Alexander for advancing companion legislation in the
Senate, and look forward to a final bill being sent to the President’s desk later this year.”
– Christopher A. Padilla, Vice President, IBM Government and Regulatory Affairs
