Senator Todd Young
I’m honored to serve on the Global Tech Security Commission with my friend Keith Krach, my colleagues in Congress, and other national security leaders. I look forward to working with this Commission on a variety of issues critical to preserving America’s global leadership in science and technology. We have a national security imperative to ensure the United States doesn’t fall behind our adversaries in technological innovation.
