My work in both the public sector and the private sector has always been focused on technology. During this time, the Internet has grown to represent 7 percent of our economy and supports nearly 7 million jobs.
I believe protecting an open Internet is critical to ensuring this juggernaut of job creation continues. Without it, innovation will undoubtedly be stifled.
Unfortunately, President Trump moved to do away with net neutrality protections. That’s why in 2018, I helped mobilize voters and wavering colleagues to stop him in the Senate.
While the Senate has voted to protect an open Internet the House must now do so as well.
