The hearing was chaired by Jim Leach (R-IA), and I believe that the committee was the House Subcommittee on International Relations (East Asia and Pacific). Regardless of where you stand on the issue, you have to admit that this is one of those interesting questions that involves an intersection of technology, economics, and government.
