Tonko Named 2020 ‘Champion of Science’

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Paul D. Tonko was recognized last week as a 2020 Champion of Science by The Science Coalition (TSC), a prestigious distinction that honors a small group of Congressional leaders each year whose actions and votes consistently reflect a commitment to fundamental science through funding investment for federal research agencies. 

“As an engineer, I have always had a deep respect for science,” said Congressman Tonko, in a statement. “When we embrace science and truth, we begin to realize the vast potential of our great nation to lead the world in advancements in technology that open our eyes even as they boost our economy, create good jobs and better the lives of countless in our Capital Region and beyond.” 

Tonko is one of nine Members of Congress recognized this year; the Science Coalition is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of more than 50 of the nation’s leading public and private research institutions dedicated to highlighting the partnerships between the federal government and America’s research universities.
