"In 2020, bipartisan legislation aimed at helping strategically pave America’s way to the Internet of Things could (finally) become law.

The Senate late last week passed the Developing and Growing the Internet of Things, or DIGIT Act. Originally introduced in 2016 and again in 2017, the bill was re-upped last year by Sens. Deb Fischer, R-Neb., Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, Cory Gardner, R-Colo., and Cory Booker, D-N.J.
