Innovation & Technology

I am a strong believer that innovation is what America does best. And that technology and science-driven policies are how we can best meet many of our 21st century challenges.

New Mexico — with our national labs, universities, and military installations — holds much promise to lead the nation in innovation and technology. The very character of our state has been shaped by hard work and a history of innovation. The technology industry, both public and private, supports nearly 50,000 jobs, at over 2,000 technology establishments throughout New Mexico.

No area of innovation and science will be more important than in our nation’s ability to tackle climate change and to lead the world in clean energy technology. The frontiers of human knowledge can be boundless, and if we harness them, will continue to fuel our nation’s prosperity.
