During the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation panel in Philadelphia, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft representatives issued another call to action for increased STEM funding and for revisions to the nation's immigration policy.

Microsoft, Amazon, and Facebook Wednesday challenged the next White House administration to increase STEM education funding and reform immigration policy during an Information Technology and Innovation Foundation panel in Philadelphia as part of a Democratic National Convention public policy forum. Representatives from the tech companies expressed the challenges faced in finding enough qualified IT professionals and how it sets the nation up for losing its stature as a technology leader, according to a CNET report.
