Legislation to Promote Entrepreneurship and Innovation by establishing a national network of fabrication laboratories, known as "fab labs."

November 18, 2013View for printing

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) introduced legislation to invest in the next generation of American entrepreneurs and innovators by establishing a national network of fabrication laboratories, known as "fab labs." Fab labs are small, community-based workshops that give members of the public - from students to small businesses - access to educational resources and high-tech equipment that can design, develop, and create new products. U.S. Representative Bill Foster (D-IL) has championed this legislation in the House of Representatives, where he introduced a companion measure in August.
