CEA Praises State of the Union Address
The Consumer Electronics Association Tuesday released a statement praising President Obama's State of the Union message.
“CEA applauds the President for the focus on innovation in his State of the Union address," President and CEO Gary Shapiro said in the statement. "CEA’s Innovation Movement – more than 110,000 Americans strong – will continue to urge our elected leaders to focus on policies that support innovation and entrepreneurship. Reducing the deficit, supporting free trade, attracting the best and brightest and investing in infrastructure and education are key to our recovery, and we support the President’s focus on these issues as part of his innovation-driven agenda."
Shapiro also praised the president for mentioning the importance of broadband in the speech, in which he set out the goal of high-speed wireless for 98 percent of Americans.
