White House Official Sees ‘Business as Normal’ in Admin Tech Agenda Following Midterms

The deputy chief of staff for policy coordination at the White House recently said he expects things to be “very much business as normal” with regards to the Trump Administration’s technology agenda despite a change in leadership in the lower chamber of Congress, Nextgov reported Thursday.

Chris Liddell said during the Technology 202 conference, hosted by the Washington Post, that Democrats retaking the House during the midterms would likely not affect federal information technology modernization efforts since these enjoy bipartisan support.

Meanwhile, regardless of the results of the elections, the administration will continue investing in advanced technologies like artificial intelligence while advocating for a less regulated technology industry, Liddell added.

“That really doesn’t change as a result of Tuesday,” Liddell noted, adding, “Everything that we’ve done in the last two years will continue.”
