In a letter dated December 8th, 2011, Clyde Beattie, along with twenty-seven other domain name industry representatives, wrote to Sen. Jay Rockefeller and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison to support [[ICANN]]'s new gTLD program, in response to the [[ICANN#New_gTLD_Senate_and_House_of_Representatives_Hearings|Senate Hearings]] taking place on the same day.

''"Far Better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."'' - Theodore Roosevelt
