Transcript: Heinrich’s First Senate Floor Speech
Thursday, June 13, 2013
Thank you, Mr. President for the opportunity to address this chamber today.
Mr. President, I am a strong believer that innovation is what America does best.
That boundless wonder and curiosity can lead to revolutionary discoveries.
That diligence and optimism can break down barriers.
Mr. President I’m a believer that technology, and more importantly the scientific method, are how we can best meet many of our 21st century challenges.
And this is indeed a time of great challenge for our nation.
There is no question that it is easier to govern in a time of peace and prosperity than in a time of economic recovery and global conflict.
But Americans are no strangers to adversity. Time and again we have shown our ingenuity and our perseverance.
In fact, the very character of our nation has been shaped by hard work and innovation.
That is America’s story.
And I am certain that our capacity to deal with the challenges that we face, rests heavily on our ability to make policy that is driven by facts, by data, and yes, Mr. President, by science.
