Register now for the Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s annual CEO and senior executives spring visit to Washington, D.C., with an agenda focused on concrete actions the federal government can undertake to jumpstart U.S. job creation.

 

Federal Policy Agenda for U.S. Job Creation:

·        Comprehensive business tax reform, including repatriation of foreign earnings

·         Workforce: Improve STEM education in the U.S. and easier access to H-1B visa and green card to allow employers access to highly skilled talent

·         Increased access to capital for renewable energy and energy efficiency, comprehensive federal energy and building efficiency legislation, and smart grid standards with third party access to data

·         Cybersecurity: Improving security through standards and incentives rather than increased regulation and mandates

·         Bringing a regional patent office to Silicon Valley

·        Scientific research support in STEM and energy 

·         High growth entrepreneurship: access to capital and talent, tax credits and decreased regulatory burden for start ups

·         Federal transportation funding for Bay Area Rapid Transit needed to support the transportation needs of one of the U.S.’ most dynamic tech hubs

This trip presents an opportunity for the delegation to meet with Senate and Congressional leaders and key Administration officials. In addition to high-level visits, the trip will feature many networking opportunities with Silicon Valley industry leaders.
