Google CEO Larry Page won't be testifying before Congress this week. In response to an invitation last week from Rep. Mary Bono Mack (R-CA), who asked Page to appear and explain the company's user policy changes, two other Google executives will appear. Google deputy general counsel Mike Yang and public policy director Pablo Chavez are preparing to deliver a closed-door briefing on Feb 2, says Ken Johnson, Mack's senior adviser. The audience will be restricted to members of the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade, which Mack chairs. Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-NC) is the ranking minority subcommittee member.
