CEA Congratulates Upton
The Consumer Electronics Association has congratulated a longtime ally of the group, Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), on being named to a crucial House committee chairmanship.
Upton this week won a contested leadership fight to become chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
“We are very pleased to congratulate Congressman Upton on his chairmanship of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce," CEA president and CEO Gary Shapiro said in a statement. "Over his career, Upton has been a leading and steadfast advocate for the technology industry. He understands that innovation will be the key to restoring a robust economy and maintaining America’s global leadership. We look forward to working with him on ensuring the allocation of additional spectrum for wireless broadband use, and other issues key to our economic future.”
