Washington, DC-- The following statement was issued today by Ed Gillespie, Executive Director of Americans for Computer Privacy (ACP) concerning the Clinton Administration’s decision to postpone issuing new encryption export regulations until January 14, 2000:

“We take this as a sign that the Administration is working to improve the draft regulations to be more consistent with the policy announced on September 16. We look forward to continuing to work with them in coming weeks.”
