Connolly Statement on Senate FSGG Bill
Washington, July 14, 2023
Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) released the following statement:
"For a government that spends more than $100 billion a year on information technology (IT), 80 percent of which is on operations and maintenance of existing IT, including legacy systems, it is inconceivable that we would move to strip the very program that meaningfully modernizes federal IT. The Technology Modernization Fund is an innovative, agile program that has proven to deliver greater security, efficiency, and operability. Furthermore, the revolving nature of the fund allows the American people to reinvest secured cost savings over and over again. I implore my colleagues to reconsider the rescission of these funds and join the Administration’s call to increase our investment into the TMF."
