Washington, D.C. — TechNet, the bipartisan policy and political network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, today welcomed new legislation sponsored by Representative Michael McCaul (R-TX) and Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) that would create a commission to address security issues posed by encryption, law enforcement, and technology.

“It is important to have an expert discussion that considers the legitimate rights and needs of consumers, businesses, governments, and the American economy. The proposed commission could provide a valuable framework to help resolve these important issues.”
TechNet has not endorsed the legislation, but it will provide comments on the bill to the legislative sponsors.
