Congressman Rick Boucher is serving his tenth term in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Virginia's Ninth Congressional District. He is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, serving on two subcommittees - Telecommunications; and Energy and Air Quality, of which he is the ranking member. He also sits on the House Judiciary Committee, serving on the Courts, the Internet and Intellectual Property Subcommittee. Since 1985, he has served as an Assistant Whip.

He originated the House Internet Caucus in 1996 and currently serves as one of two House co-chairman of the 140 member group. In that position he is a leading architect of federal policy for the Internet.

His first Internet related legislation, which became law in 1993, authorized electronic commerce by permitting for the first time, messages with commercial content to traverse the Internet backbone. His proposals to promote competition in the cable and local telephone industries are at the core of the 1996 Telecommunications Act, and he is currently authoring legislation which will establish fundamental federal policies for the Internet.
