Jan 18, 2012 Announces the withdrawal of his co-sponsorship
“I welcome input on SOPA from all sides and have heard from many constituents loud and clear. I was hopeful we could revise SOPA to address the concerns raised, but that now looks improbable, if not impossible. While many claims being made in opposition to SOPA are addressed through proposed amendments and changes to the bill, my constituents have made it clear to me that they still oppose SOPA. I pledged to take a second look at SOPA, and I did just that. I also said that I would not support a bill unless my constituents are comfortable with it. And I won’t. Recently, I have spoken with a number of constituents in person in Conway, Little Rock and around the District, and via Twitter and Facebook. In addition, I have received over 800 emails and over 250 telephone calls. I considered every constituent opinion expressed. In this case, I am convinced that there has to be a better vehicle to protect American intellectual property than SOPA. Therefore, I have decided to withdraw my support for SOPA and remove my name as a co-sponsor."
