Innovation and Technology

Innovation is the driving force behind a strong and growing economy, and nowhere is that better exemplified than in Silicon Valley, America’s hub of innovation. As a recognized leader and respected voice on technology issues, Zoe advocates strongly for Silicon Valley in Washington, D.C.

Advancing Internet Freedom 

A longtime champion of a free and open Internet, she supports free expression, universal network access, and privacy protection.  Recognizing that technology and Internet services are thriving components of our economy and culture, she is an advocate for multi-stakeholder Internet governance and removing barriers to innovation.

Leadership in the Digital Age

Among her colleagues in Congress, she is valued for her thoughtful insight and the forward-leaning policies she advances to spur the development of new technologies and the growth of America’s economy in the Digital Age.  Zoe was also instrumental in the selection of Silicon Valley for a new regional patent office so startups and inventors can have direct access to the services they need to thrive and innovate. Zoe’s Committee assignments on the House Judiciary Committee and the House Science, Space and Technology Committee provide strong platforms to advocate for issues that are key to Silicon Valley.
