    ISSA asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. ISSA. Mr. Speaker, today I rise in support of the Academic Competition Resolution of 2013. The resolution, which will establish a yearly academic competition in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics each year in each congressional district, will be much like the longstanding art competition, one in which individuals in the STEM areas--science, mathematics, and engineering-- will compete for their best accomplishments.

    Art is important; English is important. But today, our greatest shortfalls are in the areas in which these young men and women need to go, need to be interested. Nothing will more promote STEM degrees, the type we need for sciences, for our accomplishments in Silicon Valley and throughout America, than saying it's important enough by an annual competition.
