Washington, DC--(January 29, 1999)--The following statement was issued today by Ed Gillespie, Executive Director of Americans for Computer Privacy (ACP):

"With the introduction of what he has labeled the "Digital Dozen" -- twelve bills aimed at positioning America for the Digital Age -- Senator Conrad Burns (R-MT) has again demonstrated his leadership on issues of foremost importance as we enter the 21st century. ACP applauds Senator Burns for his steadfast support of encryption reform, and invites other lawmakers to join him in his efforts to bring U.S. policy on encryption in step with the technological realities of today's global marketplace."

Americans for Computer Privacy (ACP) is a broad-based coalition that brings together more than 100 companies and 40 associations representing financial services, manufacturing, telecommunications, high-tech and transportation, as well as law enforcement, civil-liberty, pro-family and taxpayer groups. ACP supports policies that advance the rights of American citizens to encode information without fear of government intrusion, and advocates the lifting of current export restrictions on U.S. made encryption.  |  © 1998 - 2003 Americans for Computer Privacy  |  Site Credits  |  Privacy Policy
