From the statement of Mike Doyle: "During last week's hearing, I voiced my concerns that in the past, over-zealous federal regulations sometimes created unnecessary burdens on business. I firmly believe that it is the responsibility of the federal government to find the most appropriate balance that ensures we do not unintentionally choke out our emerging high technology e-commerce sector while at the same time providing floor requirements relating to basic privacy protections for consumers and industry alike." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David L. Aaron, Denis E. Henry, Barbara Lawler, Joel R. Reidenberg, Stefano Rodota, David Smith, and Jonathan M. Winter.
