“three groundbreaking bills to support digital currencies and blockchain technology”
Mr. Emmer made several statements on how invested he his in making blockchain adoption official and a reality within the USA.

“Legislators should be embracing emerging technologies and providing a clear regulatory system that allows them to flourish in the United States”.
Mr. Emmer proposes that the USA government needs to have an official framework for blockchain technology adoption. The framework should serve a regulatory function through which a light touch, consistent, and simple environment is made available for blockchain innovations.
The congressman also wants the framework to clearly state the legal status of specific participants in the blockchain community; with reference made to miners the most.
Conclusively, Mr. Emman is set out to pursue a platform where taxpayers with forked digital assets can feel secure.
