Senator Coons speaks at ACS event

Watch a national leader in the science policy conversation discuss the issues we are facing today.

On Friday, January 17th, Senator Christopher Coons (D-DE) addressed a joint meeting of the Delaware Section of the American Chemical Society and the MIT Club of the Delaware Valley.  Senator Coons is a strong proponent of research funding and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education initiatives, and in 2012 he received the American Chemical Society Award for Public Service.  Senator Coons recently introduced the Job Creation through Innovation Act, which proposed that the research and development tax credit be made permanent, and the ACS’s “International Year of Chemistry” Senate resolution, where he worked with ACS staff to gather bipartisan co-sponsors.  He has also been a significant sponsor of the ACS Science & the Congress briefings.
