Lt. Governor and TechAlliance Discuss How Technology Affects Industry in Washington

Lt. Gov. Habib spoke in support of technological innovation and the value of technology at a Technology Alliance (TechAlliance) meeting in Olympia on Monday.

The TechAlliance is a statewide, not-for-profit organization of leaders from Washington’s technology-based businesses and research institutions, united by a vision of an innovation economy that benefits all of Washingtonians. Through programs, events, data analysis, and policy activities, the group advances education, research, and entrepreneurship initiatives aimed at supporting the growth of the state’s high-impact industries, job creation, and economic prosperity.

The group met to discuss a report, currently in development, about how technology affects industry in Washington—particularly apples, electricity, and healthcare.
