TO THE MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of Alan Davidson to serve as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information and Administrator of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).
Mr. Davidson is a well-qualified nominee with extensive experience in technology and information both at the policy and practitioner level. He has also served in a diverse variety of positions including at the Department of Commerce, public interest organizations, and in the private sector.
NTIA serves as the President’s primary advisor on telecommunications and information policy issues, and focuses on critical issues to the business community including spectrum management, broadband, cybersecurity, 5G security, and privacy. Confirmation of a qualified and permanent Assistant Secretary is essential to ensure the effective execution of NTIA’s responsibilities and to provide for continued U.S. global leadership in technology.
The Chamber looks forward to working with Mr. Davidson. We urge the Senate to confirm his nomination expeditiously.
