Congresswoman Eshoo served as the Ranking Member of the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology for six years. She was the first woman in the history of the Subcommittee to serve in a leadership role and was elected on January 19, 2011.
Throughout her career, Eshoo has always been a leader on technology and telecommunications issues. She has authored legislation to establish standards for digital signatures, worked to expand broadband deployment, and ensured that life-saving, location-based E9-1-1 services are deployed by wireless companies.
Congresswoman Eshoo will continue her work to expand high-speed, affordable broadband, protect electronic privacy, free up more spectrum and transition our nation’s 9-1-1 system to a next generation, IP-based network. As a strong champion of preserving an open Internet, she has vowed to push back on Republican efforts to roll back the progress made on net neutrality regulations. She also serves as a Co-chair of the bipartisan, bicameral Congressional Internet Caucus, joining Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), and Senator John Thune (R-S.D.).
