Reforms to Export Controls System

National security should be a top priority - and I'm glad that Sec'y Locke proposed reforms to modernize our export controls system. I'm sure it's not easy to keep ahead of those who seek to do us harm - but it's important that we do keep at least one step ahead of them.
Thank you.
