companies and 40 associations representing financial services,
manufacturing, telecommunications, high-tech and transportation, as
well as law enforcement, civil-liberty, pro-family and taxpayer
groups. ACP supports policies that advance the rights of American
citizens to encode information without fear of government intrusion,
and advocates the lifting of current export restrictions on U.S.-made
