Senator John Cornyn: PIPA Deserves More Thoughtful Process
U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) along with five other Republicans have sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) for a review and more time to think about S. 968, the Protect IP Act or PIPA.
Cornyn is statement released Wednesday morning said, ” Texans have soundly rejected the ‘pass now, learn later’ approach that we saw with Obamacare, and the potential impact of this legislation is too far-reaching to ram it through Congress in such an abrupt way.
Stealing content is theft, plain and simple, but concerns about the internet and free speech necessitate a more thoughtful, deliberative process.”
