PURPOSE: We intend to salute the sponsors of the  21st Century Energy Jobs Initiative Act of 2014 and highlight the energy sector’s investments in innovation, education, and diversity. On Thursday, April 23, 2015, the Subcommittee on Energy & Power held a hearing entitled “Title II: 21st Century Workforce,”  to examine a revised draft of the 21st Century Energy Jobs Act as a component of comprehensive energy reform legislation being developed by the Energy & Commerce Committee.  Information on that hearing can be found at: http://bit.ly/1ImjNS9.

This event follows the STEM & Innovation Congressional Welcoming Reception, which STEM4US! co-hosted at the start of this Congress with some of the top education and innovation leaders in the nation and region including the United Negro College Fund, Edison Electric Institute, Pepco, and Duke Energy.  Sponsored by Speaker Boehner in the US Capitol, the event drew around 150 government and industry leaders to salute Members of the House and Senate Education, Science, and Energy Committees in the 114th Congress.  Highlights of the event along with photos and video content can be found on our website at: http://stem4us.org/stem-innovation-congressional-welcoming-reception/.
