Gallegly Statement on SOPA

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties), issued the following statement today:

"While I support efforts to protect American business and consumers from foreign thieves who steal U.S. intellectual property, I have been discussing with Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith my concerns about SOPA and those that have been raised by many of my constituents.

"This morning the Chairman announced that the "House Judiciary Committee will postpone consideration of the legislation until there is wider agreement on a solution.' I still firmly believe we must protect American jobs, American consumers and the health and safety of all Americans from foreign counterfeiters and criminals. However, before moving forward we must ensure that Congress listens to those who oppose the legislation.

"I applaud Chairman Smith for listening to my concerns and the concerns of others and for his commitment to find a solution to online piracy that protects American intellectual property and innovation."
