GOP and Democratic House Members Form ‘Reality Caucus’

A group of Capitol Hill lawmakers have formed what has been dubbed the “Reality Caucus” — a group focused on virtual, augmented, and mixed reality technologies.

Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.), Rep. Suzan DelBene (D-Wash.), Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas), Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), and Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) are co-chairs of the caucus.

“As these technologies continue to advance and grow, this ‘Reality Caucus’ will work to foster information sharing between Congress and our nation’s world-leading technology industry,” the co-chairs said in a joint statement. “These technologies have shown tremendous potential for innovation in the fields of entertainment, education, and healthcare. As these technologies develop, questions will inevitably rise in privacy, intellectual property, and other areas.”

They added, “This is an opportunity to educate our colleagues and others to ensure Congress is doing all it can to encourage — rather than hinder — these enterprising fields.”

The caucus didn’t reveal when it will hold its first meeting.
