Indiana Senator Todd Young’s bill that would boost federal funding for new sciences and technologies has passed the U.S. Senate.
Young says the ‘Endless Frontier Act’ will use a grand total of 250-billion-dollars to help the U.S. get ahead of China when it comes to innovating new tech and understanding new areas of science.
The bill passed 68-to-32 with Indiana’s other senator, Mike Braun, among 31 Republicans who voted against it.
The bill now heads to the House for consideration.
If it passes the lower chamber President Biden is expected to sign it into law.
