WASHINGTON, January 27, 2011 – The Congressional High-Tech Caucus announced Wednesday that it named Rep. Doris Matsui (D-CA) as its new Co-Chair, joining Republican Michael McCaul (TX).

Matsui, who sits on the House subcommittee on Communications, Technology, and the Internet, will replace Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA), who was formerly McCaul’s Co-Chair in the caucus.  Eshoo was named ranking member of the Communications and Technology subcommittee late last week.

“I am excited to welcome Congresswoman Matsui as our House Democratic Co-Chair of the Congressional High Tech Caucus,” said McCaul through a caucus statement.  “Through her extensive work on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and her leadership in the technology and clean energy fields, she is sure to bring a fresh perspective to the leadership of the High Tech Caucus.”

The High Tech Caucus is a bipartisan organization intended to bring together Members of Congress with tech industry leaders, experts and educators to improve the high tech sector.  It was formed in the beginning of the 110th Congress.

“During [Tuesday]’s State of the Union address, the President laid out national goals to enhance American innovation and ingenuity particularly in the technology sector to move our economy and our nation forward,” said Matsui in a press release Wednesday afternoon.  “It is critical that Congress provide the necessary tools to the tech community that enables the industry to grow, innovate, and create good paying jobs.
