KCnext advocates for tech-related policies on a federal level through a partnership with CompTIA Advocacy. 

CompTIA recently posted a recap of legislative activity in 2015, including the following highlights:
  • Extension of the Internet Tax Freedom Act
  • Congress passed the Trade Promotion Authority
  • Extension of the Export-Import Bank until mid-2016
  • Permanent extension of the R&D tax credit and five-year extension of provisions that will specifically benefit small tech companies
  • Congress advanced a cybersecurity information sharing bill 
  • The White House successfully negotiated the Trans Pacific Partnership

Read CompTIA's entire recap here.

​KCnext is excited to continue our policy partnership with CompTIA in 2016, beginning with the annual DC Fly-In. KCnext President Ryan Weber will travel to Capitol Hill to participate in information sessions and meet with KC-area Congressional representatives.
