These majors "support it" but do not like the way the legislation is currently written. So by coming out and saying that they support the idea, they're ensuring a place at the table to potentially help mold and write the laws.

the answer is that now the industry will have a different strategy. there's an evolution that happens when catastrophic events occur.
