Hi John,

Thank you for your contributions to the Geolocation spec work and best 
of luck in what sounds like interesting new challenges!

I'm sure it would be of interest to the working group to get a head's up 
on what these location privacy bills are about. Any chance you or Alissa 
could share some information on this mailing list?

Thanks,
Lars Erik
