U.S. Chamber Cites Texas Innovation

Texas has played a large role in America’s innovation economy, according to a report released Wednesday by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Intellectual Property Center.

The report highlights local companies and facts showing how innovation and creativity serve as a driving force behind economic recovery and future growth. The interstate highway system and the computer RAM memory cell are two examples of ideas that originated in Texas, said Mark Esper, executive vice president of the Chamber’s GIPC.
