Readout of National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan’s Meeting with Bipartisan House Members on USICA

The White House

This morning, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan met with a bipartisan group of House members – led by Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Meeks and Ranking Member McCaul – at the White House to discuss the vital importance of investing in domestic sources of strength that will allow us to grow our economy, bolster the middle class, and out-compete China and the rest of the world.

During the meeting – which also included Rep. Gallagher, Rep. Matsui, Rep. Bera, Rep. Slotkin, and Rep. Turner – National Security Advisor Sullivan discussed a range of issues, including the success of the President’s recent trip to Europe in rallying democracies around a shared agenda.

Sullivan also stressed the importance of linking our foreign policy objectives with making vital investments to grow our economy, including through passing bipartisan legislation like the U.S. Innovation and Competition Act (USICA) and the National Science Foundation for the Future Act – which incorporates key components of the vision the President laid out through the American Jobs Plan, including in bolstering R&D in areas like climate technology, and strengthening advanced manufacturing, supply chain resiliency, and the American semiconductor industry.
