Haley Stevens

Reps. Jim Baird, R-Ind., Haley Stevens, D-Mich., and Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., introduced a bill to support small business research and development programs. The Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer Improvements Act would require the Small Business Association to annually report to Congress on SBIR and STTR programs, Baird’s office said Wednesday. The bill would also task the Department of Defense to foster technological innovation across these programs with a focus on manufacturing and cybersecurity.

“The Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer Improvements Act will make these programs even stronger by increasing accountability, prioritizing cybersecurity and promoting diversity among grant award recipients,” said Stevens, who chairs the House’s Research and Technology Subcommittee.
