On July 3, 2024, Colorado Congresswoman Yadira Caraveo delved into the quantum realm during her first official visit to JILA, a joint institute established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Colorado Boulder. 

As a House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology member, Caraveo's visit came just a day after the Mountain West was granted a $127 million boost for quantum technology and workforce development. During her tour, including a visit to Jun Ye’s renowned lab, Caraveo expressed her commitment to ensuring robust funding for agencies vital to quantum research. Accompanied by university leaders and distinguished researchers, Caraveo's visit highlighted the critical role of federal support in maintaining the U.S.'s leadership in quantum innovation.
