Yesterday, the Committee for Justice joined the Niskanen Center, Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), Competitive Enterprise Institute, the R Street Institute, and TechFreedom in calling on the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation to overturn the ban on supersonic flight. Fifty years after the Concorde's maiden flight, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Act of 2018 gives Congress the opportunity to revive supersonic transportation by requiring the FAA to develop reasonable noise standards that would be informed by noise levels tolerated for non-aviation...

The success of U.S. companies in exporting both digital services and physical goods, sold through the Internet, has greatly contributed to America’s overall balance of trade, but it would not have been possible without Section 230. Uncertainty about intermediary liability in Canada and Mexico frustrates NAFTA’s primary goal of “eliminat[ing] barriers to trade in, and facilitat[ing] the cross-border movement of, goods and services,” both because U.S. companies are unsure of their potential liability in Canada and Mexico and because it is difficult for Canadian and Mexican Internet-based services to get off the ground.

We, the undersigned organizations, have been actively engaged in the debate over the last year regarding legislation intended to combat sex trafficking online.
