1 Democratic sponsor who has expressed concerns:

* Cardin, Benjamin L. - (D - MD) 2012 (is remaining a co-sponsor "so that he can actively participate in fixing flaws in the current bill)

2 Republican sponsors who have expressed concerns:
* Risch, James E. - (R - ID) (wants "more time to re-examine the legislation before going to a vote" and has asked staff for a detailed briefing)
* Chambliss, Saxby - (R - GA) ("These concerns must be addressed. Congress should avoid rushing through a bill that could have many unintended consequences. However, as a co-sponsor I am in a better position legislatively to voice my concerns, and craft legislation that addresses Internet piracy while still protecting free and open access to the Internet.")
