The communication and technology sectors have ushered in some of the greatest economic success stories of today and of the recent past. Broadband internet availability and adoption rates have skyrocketed and the telecommunications industry has developed 3G (third generation) and now 4G (fourth generation) mobile telecommunications technologies strictly because of private investment.
The rise of the Internet and mobile telecommunications networks have spurred innovation in content and devices, which has transformed video programming, content delivery, and the way we communicate today. These industries are great examples of how the private sector flourishes and consumers benefit in the absence of government red tape and burdensome regulations.
Congressman Scalise plays an active and important role in these thriving industries through his membership on the House Communications and Technology Subcommittee, which maintains primary jurisdiction over, among other issues, the internet, telecommunications, and technology.
