We wanted to share this comprehensive statement from today from Senator Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, about the plan for moving patent reform legislation in the Senate. He concludes:
I thank the members of this Committee for joining me in this work. This is an opportunity for us to come together to pass meaningful legislation that will help American businesses, innovators, and consumers while preserving what makes our patent system great.
I hope we will come together on an agreement in the next day. Then we can post our amendment on the Committee website so all will have time to review it before we meet again to vote on Tuesday.
We look forward to Tuesday, and to the Senate joining the House in passing patent reform legislation.
