Omaha World-Herald Letter to the Editor: Keep Nebraska a State of Innovation

This post originally appeared in the Omaha World-Herald on February 10, 2017.

As an engineer and University of Nebraska alum, I was pleased to read the Jan. 22 WORLD-HERALD editorial about the UNeTech partnership helping to grow jobs and increasing innovation.

However, legislation in Congress could thwart this great partnership, harm Nebraska’s inventors and entrepreneurs and stifle our state’s innovation. The legislation, H.R. 9 in the House and S. 1137 in the Senate, introduced last year and likely to come up again this year, would threaten our state’s startups in a number of ways.
