Congressional Smart Cities Caucus to discuss 'A Movement for Inclusion to Seize 21st Century Opportunities'
Congresswoman Yvette Clarke and Congressman Darrell Issa formed the bi-partisan U.S. Congressional Smart Cities Caucus earlier this year to streamline the creation of policies that accelerate smart development efforts across regions and cities of all sizes in the United States. The Smart Cities Caucus is bridging the divide between federal policy and emerging technology.
