The Administration supports House passage of H.R. 2544. The bill will
significantly facilitate the licensing of Government-owned inventions by
Federal agencies. The modifications that were made by the Science
Committee to section 6 of the bill are important to the Administration's
support of the bill. These modifications should ensure that the
requirements of that provision will not unduly hamper the process of
entering into cooperative research and development agreements.
