Technology

Technology-based industries and businesses create tremendous growth and opportunity in the U.S. economy and are essential to competing in an interconnected world. Outdated laws and regulations impede U.S. technological innovation and deployment.

The U.S. Chamber and the Chamber Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) promote market-based solutions, policies that foster investment in technology research and deployment, and balanced regulatory treatment of technical platforms.
