Rep. Gerry Connolly Wants Senate to Pass Govt IT Modernization Bill

ITphotoRep. Gerry Connolly (D-Virginia) expects the Senate to pass a bill that would set aside $3.1 billion in funds to support federal agencies’ information technology modernization efforts, Defense News reported Tuesday.

Joe Gould writes Connolly wants the Modernizing Government Technology Act to move through the Senate during a lame duck session of Congress after the Nov. 8 election.

Connolly and Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) introduced the bill that House lawmakers unanimously approved in September.

The legislation would also allow agencies to reinvest savings through compliance with the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act, Gould wrote.
