                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
    Recognizing the significance of the anniversary of the American 
 Association for the Advancement of Science Congressional Science and 
   Engineering Fellowship Program, and reaffirming the commitment to 
support the use of science in governmental decisionmaking through such 
                                Program.

Whereas Congress hosted the American Association for the Advancement of 
        Science's (AAAS) first Congressional Science and Engineering Fellows 30 
        years ago in 1973;
Whereas the AAAS Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowship Program was 
        the first to provide an opportunity for Ph.D.-level scientists and 
        engineers to learn about the policymaking process while bolstering the 
        technical expertise available to Members of Congress and staff;
Whereas Members of Congress hold the AAAS Congressional Science and Engineering 
        Fellowship Program in high regard for the substantial contributions that 
        Fellows have made, serving both in personal offices and on committee 
        staff;
Whereas the Congress is increasingly involved in public policy issues of a 
        scientific and technical nature and recognizes the need to develop 
        additional in-house expertise in the areas of science and engineering;
Whereas more than 800 individuals have held AAAS Congressional Science and 
        Engineering Fellowships since 1973;
Whereas the AAAS Congressional Science and Engineering Fellows represent the 
        full range of physical, biological, and social sciences, and all fields 
        of engineering;
Whereas the AAAS Congressional Science and Engineering Fellows bring to the 
        Congress new insights and ideas, extensive knowledge, and perspectives 
        from a variety of disciplines;
Whereas the AAAS Congressional Science and Engineering Fellows learn about 
        legislative, oversight, and investigative activities through assignments 
        that offer a wide array of responsibilities;
Whereas AAAS Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowships provide an 
        opportunity for scientists and engineers to transition into careers in 
        government service; and
Whereas many former AAAS Congressional Science and Engineering Fellows return to 
        their disciplines and share knowledge with students and peers to 
        encourage more scientists and engineers to participate in informing 
        government processes: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That the Congress--
            (1) recognizes the significance of the anniversary of the 
        American Association for the Advancement of Science 
        Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowship Program;
            (2) acknowledges the value of 30 years of participation by 
        the American Association for the Advancement of Science 
        Congressional Science and Engineering Fellows; and
            (3) reaffirms its commitment to support the use of science 
        in governmental decisionmaking through the American Association 
        for the Advancement of Science Congressional Science and 
        Engineering Fellowship Program.
