Why I Support VFI

Having two young girls, I want to make sure they are getting everything they need from a computer science and STEM educational standpoint, especially at a young age. In addition, our use of technology in our everyday lives is changing rapidly, and we need to make sure that our laws stay up to date with those changes.
