Mr. RUSH. I thank the gentlewoman. Mr. Chairman, her amendment is a very worthwhile amendment. It goes a long way toward getting to the essence of a problem that I have determined is one of the barriers to economic parity within this Nation.

Mr. Chairman, we are sick and tired in my community of just being viewed as consumers of technology. We also want to be providers of technology. And this amendment, the Jackson-Lee amendment, would go a long way in making us providers of that amendment.
