ABSTRACT

H. Rept. 106-117, Part 3: Security and Freedom Through Encryption (SAFE) Act, Report Together with Dissenting Views, to Accompany H.R. 850, Including Cost Estimate of the Congressional Budget Office, July 19, 1999   [open pdf - 430KB]

From the Background and Purpose: "H.R. 850, the Security And Freedom through Encryption (SAFE) Act, represents a strong bipartisan effort to bring U.S. laws on the export of encryption technology in line with international realities. The SAFE Act enjoys strong support in the House as reflected by the overwhelming number of cosponsors, including the majority of the Members of the International Relations Committee. While differences still remain and the debate continues between U.S. economic and commercial priorities and individual civil liberties, on the one hand, and the needs and concerns of law enforcement and national security agencies, the SAFE Act is generating the political will to reform the existing regulatory process to meet today's realities."
