From the DATA Act to the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, Congress finds itself involved in details of technology policy. Yet few professional staff members on Capitol Hill have formal technology backgrounds to help draft that legislation. A group called TechCongress is trying to address that problem by recruiting technology experts as Congressional Innovation Fellows. The program, now in its third year, is actively looking for candidates for the 2018 fellowship program. Travis Moore is the founder and director of TechCongress. He talked with Federal News Radio’s Jared Serbu about the fellowship, and how it got started.
