Congressman Roger Marshall attended the White House ceremony on Tuesday for the signing of SZ. 153, the Supporting Veterans in Stem Careers Act. Marshall was a cosponsor of the House companion bill which passed in Feb. 2019.

The Act will promote veteran involvement in STEM education, computer science  and scientific research through better integration of veterans issues within existing National Science Foundation programs and improved coordination across multiple federal agencies.

Marshall stated, "No one cares more about veterans than President Trump. Working together with Congress, the Trump Administration continues to deliver for veterans across the country, from implementing major reforms at the Department of Veterans Affairs to bridging the gap between veterans seeking training and employment opportunities in our most rapidly expanding industries.." Marshall said the bill signed into law will ensure veterans are equipped with the tools they need to enter into STEM-related field.
