House authorizes Internet giveaway

June 23, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting House passage of HR 805, the Dotcom Act:

“Just weeks after voting to defund the National Telecommunications and Information Administration from transitioning the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority to ICANN, the House has now voted to authorize it upon a meaningless report being submitted by the Obama administration. Americans for Limited Government urges the U.S. Senate to reject this legislation. There is simply no reason for Congress to grant power to Obama that will cede the First Amendment protections that U.S. government oversight of the Internet’s domain name system affords.”
