AIAA: STEM Jobs Act to benefit U.S.

RESTON, Va., 3 Dec. 2012. “The STEM Jobs Act of 2012 will help the United States economy remain globally competitive,” says Sandra H. Magnus, executive director of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), “by increasing the number of green cards available for foreign graduates of America’s universities who have attained advanced degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics (STEM).

“This legislation helps assure that the United States will benefit from these individuals’ talents and expertise, and will continuously ensure that the world’s best talent in STEM fields is able to be retained by U.S. firms,” Magnus says. “Additionally, this legislation promises to spur American innovation in the STEM fields, continuing a rich legacy of advancement and discovery by U.S. STEM firms.”
