  Ms. CASTOR of Florida. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the 143

Trademark Office and inducted as the 2013 Fellows of the National

Innovation, two recipients of the National Medal of Science, nine Nobel 
Laureates, and 23 AAAS Fellows, among other major awards and 
  The contributions made to society through innovation are 
immeasurable. I commend these individuals, and the organizations that
