Legislation surrounding tax, trade, cybersecurity, broadband, privacy, new technology, and workforce development is always changing. Participants in the annual CompTIA DC Fly-In capture opportunities to join in panel discussions with Capitol Hill staff and think tanks and a range of meetings with Congressional members and staff.
A bad habit has developed in Washington. Like many bad DC habits, this one is about procrastination and creating unnecessary uncertainty for innovators. In the days ahead, Congress will consider renewal of a package of tax incentives and breaks known as tax extenders. We've been through this before.
TechAmerica powered by CompTIA today announced a 35% increase in new strategic partnerships focused on increasing grassroots advocacy throughout the United States. The grassroots coalition now reaches more than 14,000 technology companies in more than 20 states. The new strategic partners: California Technology Council, Howard Technology Council, Metroplex Technology Business Council, Nashville Technology Council, OCTANe and the Wisconsin Technology Council will join 17 technology councils that already affiliate on public policy advocacy and other activities to educate their member companies on national policy issues affecting their IT businesses.
