Inhofe Opposes U.S. Innovation and Competition Act, Does Not Include Adequate Defense Spending

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) today announced his opposition to the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act, known previously as the Endless Frontier Act, because it does not provide adequate spending for defense:

“Choosing between technology and military priorities when it comes to competition with China is a false choice. The strongest signal we can send to deter China is by competing on all levels: in technological innovation, in domestic manufacturing and in providing resources to our military to create the strongest military deterrent possible. This legislation is incomplete without adequate defense funding and I cannot support it.”
