From immigration changes to broadband rules to tax law, technology leaders are carefully watching how the Trump agenda unfolds.

Under the former White House, one little-known department called the Office of Science and Technology Policy became a main resource when determining policies that would affect Silicon Valley. But the office has since shriveled.

Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd speaks with Tony Romm (@TonyRomm), senior editor of policy and politics for Recode, about the OSTP, how it is changing and what that means for technology policy.

This segment aired on April 4, 2017.
