From the opening statement of Billy Long: "The National unemployment rate currently stands at 8.2 percent, and our Nation faces economic headwinds. Over the last 2 years, we have examined many threats to the U.S. homeland. However, today's hearing provides an opportunity, a unique opportunity, for Members on the subcommittee to examine an issue that affects both National security and American competitiveness and job security. This is an issue that touches small and medium-sized businesses in Congressional districts all across America. Foreign economic and industrial espionage against the United States represents a significant and growing threat to the Nation's prosperity, American jobs, and National security. The primary strengths of the private sector in the United States are its tangible assets, including research and development, intellectual property, sophisticated business processes, and enforceable contracts." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Billy Long, Brian Higgins, Stuart Graham, John P. Woods, C. Frank Figliuzzi, and Gregory C. Wilshusen.
