The leaders of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee introduced a similar version of the bill in June 2018. The committee does not have jurisdiction over the Department of Energy, so those provisions were excluded. The committee approved a modified version of the bill in August 2018, adopting a substitute amendment by Committee Chair John Thune (R-SD) and three minor amendments by Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA).
The amended bill:
In November 2018, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee introduced the "DOE Quantum Information Science Research Act." That bill directs the DOE Office of Science to create between two and five quantum information science research centers and authorizes a budget of up to $25 million annually for each over five years.
