Moving Our Government into the 21st Century

Washington, D.C.—Congressman Todd Rokita released the following statement following President Trump’s visit in Iowa to discuss the importance of technology and agriculture.

“Agriculture is an extremely important industry in our country and in Indiana. It is great to see President Trump, Vice President Pence, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, and our Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue talking with American farmers about ways technology is helping their industry. As an advocate for Indiana’s farmers, I’m proud to see the Administration take this step.”

Also this week, President Trump and Vice President Pence met with tech CEOs. They discussed the importance of public-private partnerships, big data, and their ideas to create more effective cyber security.

“It’s important that we move our government into the 21st century. If there is a solution in the private sector, our door should be open. It is great to see this Administration looking for solutions to make our government more effective and efficient. This is something I have been leading the effort on since I came to Congress.”
