On Wednesday, we celebrated Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mark Warner and Reps. Will Hurd and Suzan DelBene as BSA’s 2017 Software Champions during a rooftop reception. I would again like to thank each Member of Congress for working tirelessly for the software industry, for their bipartisan leadership in educating others about software issues, and for their dedication to modernizing policies.
The reception also highlighted information about job growth and R&D contributions from the 10 states where BSA’s members are located – California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Washington – as well as food and wine from those regions.
We were honored to host hundreds of guests, including Reps. Matt Gaetz, Darrell Issa, John Rutherford, Brad Schneider, and Eric Swalwell.
