Zuckerberg To Meet With House Republican Leadership


Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg plans to meet with the top four House Republicans next week.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) are scheduled to meet with Zuckerberg on Sept. 19, leadership aides confirmed to TPM on Wednesday.

The meetings are expected to cover a number of topics related to Facebook such as Internet privacy and the tax system.

Immigration reform could also come up although leadership aides did not specifically say it would. Immigration reform has been a primary topic of Zuckerberg’s policy interests. He and a number of other tech executives formed FWD.us, an advocacy group that supports comprehensive immigration reform.
