McMorris Rodgers Participates in Series of Successful Meetings in Heart of Silicon Valley

Cupertino, CA – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Caucus and Co-Chair of the Republican New Media Caucus, participated in a series of successful meetings in Silicon Valley on Monday.  As a strong advocate for the advancement of technological innovation on Capitol Hill, Rep. McMorris Rodgers met with CEOs and government affairs officials at Genentech, TechAmerica, Microsoft, Facebook and Apple.   

“I’m thrilled to have spent the day in Silicon Valley – the epicenter of technological innovation and entrepreneurship – to meet with some of America’s finest leaders in the technology industry,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.  “As Vice Chair, one of my key leadership initiatives is to harness new media and technology – and to make Congress more efficient, transparent and connected to the American people.  Today’s meetings provided a phenomenal opportunity to advance that goal.”

As one of Congress’s most active and vocal leaders on the new media front, Rep. McMorris Rodgers launched a project called “GOP Labs” last year.  This initiative – aimed to facilitate the growth of new media and technology – has bolstered House Republican engagement with the American people.
