“This issue threatens not only our personal liberties, but also our national security.”
Those words from Senator Ted Cruz regarding the Obama administration’s plans to turn over control of the internet to 160 foreign governments including “regimes that view the Internet as a way to increase their influence and suppress freedom of speech.”
Cruz has introduced the Protecting Internet Freedom Act in the Senate and Rep. Sean Duffy has introduced the companion bill in the House. It would prevent the transfer of functions related to the Internet Domain Name System to foreign governments unless specifically authorized by Congress.
