House Judiciary Committee to Consider Legislation in the Coming Weeks

Washington, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) released the following statement on Senate passage of S. 1890, the Defend Trade Secrets Act.

“I am encouraged by the Senate’s recent passage of the Defend Trade Secrets Act. Trade secrets are an increasingly important form of intellectual property that have become more vulnerable to theft as a result of our globalized economy.

“Protecting the vital proprietary information of U.S. companies is essential to American competiveness, job creation, and ensuring a robust economy.  I look forward to moving legislation to protect American trade secrets through the House Judiciary Committee in the coming weeks.”
