High-tech bigwigs lobby Bush

Twelve high-tech executives have written President Bush urging an aggressive technology agenda. Intel Chairman Andy Grove, Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer and other Business Software Alliance (BSA) members urged the president to support strong worldwide copy protection for computer software, deregulation of global markets for technology, and the continuation of the H-1B visa program for foreign high-tech workers until U.S. schools can produce more homegrown workers. Several high-tech executives, including new BSA member and Dell founder Michael Dell, are meeting with Bush on Thursday to review high-tech policy matters. Dell was a strong backer and technology advisor of Bush during the presidential campaign last year.
