ALG urges no vote on any CR that does not stop Internet surrender

Sept. 27, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Congress to reject any continuing resolution that fails to stop the Internet surrender:

“It is now or never to stop the Internet surrender. Given the Department of Justice’s failures to respond to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees on a number of outstanding legal concerns with the Internet transition of U.S. oversight of the domain name system, delaying the transition for at least a year while these issues are addressed and letting a new Congress and Administration take a look is in order. These issues risk either creating an unaccountable global Internet monopoly or a potentially fractured domain name system if antitrust does come into play. The transition proposal contemplates neither scenario, and these issues cannot be addressed once the transition occurs on Oct. 1.”
