The Honorable Jerry Moran

United States Senator, (Kansas)

After serving 7 terms in the United States House of Representatives, Kansans elected Jerry Moran to the United States Senate in 2010. Since joining the U.S. Senate, Senator Moran has emerged as a leader on technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation policy. Senator Moran successfully led opposition, along with Senator Ron Wyden, to defeat the PROTECT IP Act, because of its impact on innovation, free speech, and national security, and he has been active in encouraging Congress to develop smart spectrum policy. Senator Moran is also the author of the Startup Act and Startup Act 2.0. These bipartisan bills seek to unleash the job-creating power of entrepreneurs to innovate, create, and grow the economy. Senator Moran has spent time at SXSW (South By Southwest) in Austin, Texas, and at CES promoting the legislation and meeting young entrepreneurs and startup companies. This is Senator Moran's first State of the Net Conference.
