The co-chairs of the Congressional High Tech Caucus plan to sit together when President Obama delivers his State of the Union address on Tuesday.
Reps. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, and Congresswoman Doris Matsui, D-Calif., say they want to show that members of Congress can work together to boost the economy through issues such as tax reform, cloud computing, cybersecurity, spectrum, privacy, and intellectual property and copyright protection.
"The American technology industry continues to be the envy of the world and a proven job creator," Matsui said in a statement. "As we continue working to get Americans back to work and keep our country competitive, we are demonstrating that we must come together to accomplish these things,"
