Information Technology Solutions Joins TechVoice to Advocate for IT Sector on Capitol Hill

Patent, tax, and immigration reform among the top priorities for the TechVoice Fly-In.

Eric Long, CEO of Information Technology Solutions, joined TechVoice to advocate for IT sector priorities on Capitol Hill during the organization’s annual fly-in to Washington, D.C. TechVoice, a partnership of CompTIA and the Technology Councils of North America (TECNA), works to provide a voice to tech companies on Capitol Hill.

As a TechVoice participant, Long met with Senator Bill Nelson, Senator Marc Rubio, Congresswoman Kathy Castor, and others to focus their attention on policies that support patent reform, develop skills for the 21st century workforce, back the SMB tech entrepreneur, lead in secure Internet-based platform technologies, and support new and emerging technology platforms.

“Tech sector innovation is a key force behind a strong 21st century economy, and Congress should prioritize issues that affect small and mid-size tech businesses,” says Long. “These issues include patent reform to counter abusive patent litigation tactics by so-called ‘patent trolls’, ensuring tax reform is fair to tech SMBs; and immigration reform that includes making it easier to recruit and retain the ‘best and the brightest’ of high-tech workers in an effort to close the skills gap and remain globally competitive.”

This is the second year that Long has participated in the TechVoice Fly-In.

“As the tech sector grapples with the implementation of 2014 Congressional priorities, TechVoice will continue to facilitate open discourse between legislators and small and mid-sized tech businesses,” says Todd Thibodeaux, president and CEO of CompTIA. “Through a balanced, multi-policy approach that incorporates the needs of hiring businesses, Congress can boost economic growth nationwide.”
