Jan 19, 2012 Letter to constituent, in opposition to SOPA as it's "currently drafted"
"There is agreement among all involved that online piracy is a problem that has to be addressed. However, as SOPA is currently drafted, I would not be able to support this legislation. In order to successfully combat online piracy, an effort must include all those involved, from internet service providers and search engines to content providers. Until some broader agreement can be reached among interested parties, I do not believe the House will advance this piece of legislation."
