“The technology industry congratulates Secretary Raimondo on her confirmation. Now, more than ever, it is critical that the U.S. demonstrates a meaningful commitment to digital policies that drive U.S. economic competitiveness and improve Americans’ lives, such as broadband, industry standards, supply chain security, and trade.
