New & Emerging Technology

The Emerging Technologies Committee has held a series of ongoing briefings to the Congressional Technology Staff Association (CTSA) on key issues. The CTSA is an association of over 150 congressional staffers that have technology issues in their portfolio.

Emerging Tech Legislative Tracker
CompTIA tracks both the federal and state legislative and regulatory environment, providing the very latest on bills and regulations that impact emerging technology.
