Congressman Gerry Connolly Discusses Federal IT Legislation

Key legislative efforts include FITARA, MGT, and strengthening data security across the government after the OPM breach.

He discusses some of the successes (and speedbumps) in implementing FITARA and holding agencies accountable for reform, as well as the efforts on the Hill to give agencies the resources they need to modernize their systems and reduce costs. He also shares efforts underway to protect data in the federal space and his priorities in Congress moving forward.
