Congress Must Act To Get Obama To Extend IANA Functions Contract 2 Years
Fairfax, Va. — Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Congress to not only defund the Internet giveaway again but also to require the Obama administration to extend the current government contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for another two years and to authorize Congress to take the administration to court should Obama fail to comply with federal statute forbidding the transfer:
"To stop this foolish surrender of a function that has been performed successfully by the government since the Internet was invented, Congress should not only once again defund the transfer, as it has the past two fiscal years, but also should require that the current government contract with ICANN be extended at least another two years, and authorize Congress to take Obama to federal court to prevent the transfer from being performed in defiance of the law.
"The federal government's stewardship of the Internet has been a success story since the late 1990s, and we'd have to have lost our collective minds to cede oversight to foreign powers that do not hold U.S. interests to heart including the free and open Internet. There is no replacement for the First Amendment's protection, which is a prerequisite for every action the government undertakes, including overseeing this contract. The surest way to prevent the Internet from being censored is to keep things the way they are, with the Constitution and if necessary the role of federal courts to apply it. Because once government oversight is gone, so too are the Internet's First Amendment protections."
