US Rep. and Georgia Tech alum Phil Gingrey, MD, was named ranking member on the technology and innovation subcommittee of the House Science and Technology Committee. As the highest ranking Republican on the subcommittee, Gingrey will play an integral role in policies affecting America's technological competitiveness.

"Ever since my days as a Chemistry major at Georgia Tech, I've had a keen interest in science, technology, and how to make our nation a global leader in both," said Gingrey. "Technology touches every part of our lives, from the lights in your house to the military weapons protecting our nation. Innovation is critical to keeping the US competitive. Exciting advances are being made every day, and I look forward to examining how we can keep America at the forefront of these industries."

The subcommittee on technology and innovation handles issues related to US technological competitiveness. It also has jurisdiction over research and development programs at the Department of Homeland Security, transportation research at the Department of Transportation and the transfer of select military technologies to the civilian sector. Recently, the subcommittee examined voting machined standards and worked to strengthen US manufacturing.
