California Representatives Sign On to FRPAA

Representatives Zoe Lofgren and Henry Waxman have joined more than twenty bipartisan co-sponsors of the Federal Research Public Access Act of 2012 in the U.S. House of Representatives.  This legislation would require federal agencies to provide public online access to articles reporting on the results of federally funded research no more than six months after publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Joint bills were introduced in both the House and Senate on February 9 and have attracted broad bipartisan support for their potential to fuel innovation and economic growth.
