Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-Wisconsin), Chair of the House Science Committee, and Twenty-five cosponsors have introduced the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Act. The bill, H.R. 2086, would amend the High Performance Computing and Communications Act to reauthorize HPCC funding at the six research agencies under the Committee's jurisdiction for the next five years. It would also establish a new NITR&D program, defined as "grants for long-term basic research on networking and information technology, with priority given to research that helps address issues related to high end computing and software and network stability, fragility, reliability, security (including privacy), and scalability."
