WASHINGTON, DC – The Energy and Commerce Committee started the week strong, clearing 10 committee bills through the House that will boost our nation’s energy infrastructure and improve energy efficiency. On Tuesday, #SubDCCP hosted a bipartisan #IoTShowcase with 21 businesses from across the country and later that morning, held a hearing to continue exploring how this innovation is changing the landscape for consumers and businesses. In the remainder of the week, #SubCommTech members examined cybersecurity risks to wireless technology, and the committee held a #SubEnvironment markup where members advanced three bills aiming to modernize the nation’s environmental laws.
