“New Mexico’s national and defense laboratories play a critical role in our national security, and each one is a vital job creator and source of economic development for our state. Today’s meeting was a continuation of our work to spur collaboration among the private, public, and academic sectors so that this region has a comprehensive education and workforce pipeline that meets the needs of labs, graduates, and working families.
