Bennet Statement on Senate AI Insight Forum

Washington, D.C. – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement upon the completion of the Senate’s inaugural AI Insight Forum: 

“Today’s forum reinforced that we need a new, independent agency to regulate AI and social media. This will best enable us to engage with new technologies while mitigating potential harms. Big Tech has written its own rules for too long. We cannot continue to allow these companies to continue to transform American life with no guardrails. Washington needs to stand up for the American people, who have never had a say in how Big Tech uses their data, addicts their kids, and tears at the fabric of our nation. Now is the time for America to set the standard for the rest of the world.”
