Senator Cory Booker on tech regulations and social media slacktivism: ‘We cannot get left behind’

Tech innovation is moving fast, and Senator Booker wants us to keep up

 

Innovate, innovate, innovate 

Besides social media advances, Booker wants to see the rest of the tech sector reach its fullest potential, and to do that, he thinks the U.S. government needs to ease up on regulations.  

“We’re not moving at the speed of innovation due to regulations,” he said, adding that because of this, key industries are leaving the U.S. to work on projects in other countries where the rules aren’t as strict. For example, the Federal Avian Administration has hindered drone innovation to the point where drone companies are leaving the U.S. to test and build in Europe.

“We’re being left behind on everything from next-generation nuclear energy to driverless cars and biologics,” Booker said, “and we cannot get left behind.”
