Gov. Rick Perry has championed Texas’ biotechnology industry with millions of dollars in state grants. On his watch, the Texas Legislature has doubled the state outlay for higher education research. His office has strongly promoted science and math education through the Texas Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Initiative. He signed a $3 billion bond issue to find a cure for cancer.
