My thought is this: There were many groups representing 
industries/constituencies important to our region which spoke out 
against the problematic TPM protections in C-32. I'm thinking of groups 
like national student, teacher, library and software/technology 
organizations.  A good question would be, given the concerns of these 
groups, what does the candidate intend to do to ensure that these 
concerns are addressed in future legislation?
