High Technology

By Anna G. Eshoo

Candidate for United States Representative; District 14

This information is provided by the candidate
High technology is the foundation of our new economy, and I'm committed to ensuring our children succeed in the 21st Century.

If our children are to succeed, they must be computer literate. During the 106th Congress, I fought hard for increased funding for the E-rate program to provide discounts to public and private schools and libraries on telecommunications services, Internet access and internal networking. The E-rate program fosters greater parental involvement, spurs demand for the Internet, fosters partnerships among diverse community institutions, and allows schools and libraries to make new investments in technology.

I take great pride in the knowledge that my work can improve the daily lives of thousands of people who live and work here on the Peninsula. Whether it is creating a universal standard for businesses to accept digital signatures for e-commerce - or leading the effort to eliminate export restrictions on encryption technology allowing high tech companies to compete on equal footing with foreign companies - my work can benefit people's lives.
