More than 40 TechNet executives will be meeting with lawmakers from both parties to push for action on investment in research and development; clean energy technologies; tax and immigration reform; expanding free trade; and extending the research and development tax credit, which expired at the end of 2011.
The group also will be pushing lawmakers to pass legislation to free up more spectrum for wireless broadband technologies and to continue to oppose anti-piracy legislation that critics say could harm the integrity of the Internet and innovation.
TechNet has joined several leading tech groups and companies in opposing the two controversial bills, the Senate's Protect IP Act and the Stop Online Piracy Act in the House, aimed at curbing piracy and counterfeiting on foreign websites. ...
The group also has plans to meet with Treasury Department officials and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk.
The TechNet executives also have meetings scheduled with representatives from President Obama's re-election campaign and the campaigns of GOP presidential contenders Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum.
