Short Take: Republican congressmen endorse crypto bill

Republican representatives Dick Armey (R-Texas) and Bob Goodlatte (R-Virginia) have written a letter of endorsement for the Security and Freedom through Encryption (SAFE) Act, which is legislation that loosens government export controls on encryption. The letter, addressed to other Republican representatives, claims the bill would strengthen national security, secure American jobs, and protect privacy rights.
