The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), joining 18 other leading organizations, urging Congress to fulfill its bipartisan responsibility and raise the nation’s debt limit without delay. The letter was sent today to every Member of Congress.

Continued threats of default undermine the stability of the economy, undercut U.S. global competitiveness, and directly impact U.S. workers. We urge Congress to protect the full faith and credit of the United States and pay its obligations without further delay.

We urge both parties to come together and secure a bipartisan agreement that removes the threat of default immediately. America’s global leadership and economic prosperity are on the line.
