CEA Applauds Resolution Protecting Internet Freedom
Arlington, VA – 05/31/2012 – House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI), Ranking Member Henry Waxman (D-CA), Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR), Ranking Member Anna Eshoo (D-CA), and Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade Subcommittee Chairman Mary Bono Mack (R-CA) today introduced a bipartisan resolution, H.Con.Res 127, rejecting the proposed international takeover of the Internet and preserving the current “multi-stakeholder” model of governance.

The following statement can be attributed to Veronica O’Connell, CEA vice president of congressional affairs:
“This resolution will send a strong message that the United States will reject any international efforts to bring the Internet under government control. We urge Congress to act quickly to adopt this bipartisan resolution to ensure that the Internet remains free from international regulations. Such regulations will stifle innovation, and harm job creation and the economy both in the United States and abroad.”
