House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) received the “Legislator of the Year” Award from the Information Technology Industry (ITI) Council in recognition of his support of policies that support businesses, his commitment to stabilizing the economy, and his outreach to the technology community.

“I am honored to receive this award from the Information Technology Industry Council,” Whip Hoyer said. “Its member companies are America’s leading innovators, who continue to reshape our society with new technologies and products that open doors to greater opportunity. Their voices are ever more important as Congress continues its pursuit of solutions to our economic challenges. In visiting a number of these companies and in my meetings with technology industry leaders, I’ve heard the same message again and again: Congress must invest in a highly skilled workforce and enact policies that help businesses succeed here in America. I look forward to continuing to work with members of the Information Technology Industry Council to continue to promote policies that make our economy the most competitive in the world.”
