MEETING WITH REPRESENTATIVE KINZINGER’S LEGISLATIVE DIRECTOR
October 9, 2019
MEETING TIME: 1:00pm PST
Another positive call! It’s a great day when you can say that voices are being heard!
To start, we were informed by the Legislative Director that the House Committee on Energy & Commerce will be having a hearing on “Fostering a Healthier Internet to Protect Consumers” on October 16, 2019 at 10:00am EST. The two Subcommittee’s, Communications and Technology and Consumer Protection, will come together to speak on the issues of internet communications and technology as well as consumer protection today. It is not determined if the hearing will be shown on CSPAN, often depending on the hottest topic at that time. You can go onto the website at https://energycommerce.house.gov/committee-activity/hearings/hearing-on-fostering-a-healthier-internet-to-protect-consumers to view any updated information.
As for Representative Kinzinger’s office, they are moving along steadily. If anything is to be drawn up, all research must be done with precision. When presenting to the House, it’s crucial to have all your I’s dotted and T’s crossed. Please know, work and research is continuing to be done and we have not been told “there’s nothing we can do”! That in itself is hugely encouraging! A follow up call was suggested with Bryan and I for the very near future.
