Whether we like it or not, innovation in technology is going to continue exponentially, and fundamentally change the way we work today. The economy is already being disrupted by companies like Uber, AirBnB, TaskRabbit, and Handy -- but government regulations are way behind. We need a government that works with the 21st century on-demand/gig economy, says Senator Mark Warner, not against it.

Senator Mark Warner of Virginia was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2008 and reelected to a second term last November. During his time in the Senate, Senator Warner has established himself as a bipartisan leader who has worked across the aisle to find commonsense solutions to jumpstart the economic recovery, cut red tape, increase government transparency, and promote private sector innovation and jobs.
