TECHNOLOGY

Technology effects every part of our lives and we must constantly move our understanding of technology forward to protect citizens, promote economic development, and to educate our children so they can be competitive in the workplace. I have worked to ensure that technology remains a priority by creating and leading as the first chair of the House Special Committee on Information Technology and Advanced Communications.

•   Lobbied leadership to create and then was appointed chair of the first House Special Committee on Information Technology & Advanced Communications.

•   Named co-chair of the Communications, Financial Services and Interstate Commerce Committee for the National Conference of State Legislatures.

•   Sponsored and passed House Bill 585, saving local government money and ensuring continuity of emergency service calls.

•   Partnered with state, local and federal officials to create funding for the new Logan County Area Technology Center.
