Government Affairs Update Podcast: A Conversation with Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA)

Government Affairs Update Podcast: A Conversation with Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA)

Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) joined the Engineering Influence podcast to discuss a variety of topics including infrastructure, her work as a founder of the Women in STEM Caucus in the House, and her experience as an engineer in Congress. 

During the interview, Rep. Houlahan discussed a number of bills she is working on to get more people into the STEM pipeline, including the STEM RESTART Act, which she introduced along with Rep. Jim Baird (R-IN) and Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), and Mark Kelly (D-AZ). The bill would fund mid-career internships—or "returnships"—for mid-career workers seeking to re-enter the STEM fields. Click here for more information on this legislation

Rep. Houlahan is a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus, which has endorsed the bipartisan agreement on infrastructure. She discussed that, as well as the PPP FAR credits clause issue, which ACEC is heavily engaged on through our advocacy team.
