ACP TO JOIN LAWMAKERS FOR RE-INTRODUCTION OF SAFE ACT

COALITION MARKS ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH RENEWED COMMITMENT TO ENCRYPTION POLICY REFORM

WHAT: A news conference will be held to announce the re-introduction of the Security And Freedom through Encryption (SAFE) Act and to offer an update on ACP efforts, as the coalition observes its first anniversary.
WHO: Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-VA); Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-CA); House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX); Ed Gillespie, ACP Executive Director; Jack Quinn, ACP Counsel; Jerry Berman, Executive Director, Center for Democracy and Technology; and Randy Lively, President and CEO, American Financial Services Association.
WHERE: Room HC-122, U.S. Capitol
WHEN: Thursday, February 25, 1999 at 10 a.m.
BACKGROUND: Americans for Computer Privacy 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 law enforcement, civil-liberty, pro-family and taxpayer groups. The coalition was formally launched at a Capitol Hill news conference on March 4, 1998 and continues its efforts to communicate the need for encryption reform. ACP supports the SAFE Act and 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.
