Committee Leaders Acknowledge Progress On Internet Transition Proposal | Energy and Commerce Committee: March 10, 2016 Press Release: WASHINGTON, DC – "House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI), Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR), and Environment and the Economy Subcommittee Chairman John Shimkus (R-IL) today acknowledged the multistakeholder community’s proposal to transition stewardship of the Internet Assigned Number Authority from the U.S. government to the Internet community. The committee has been actively engaged in the future of the Internet. “This transition proposal marks a major milestone in the history of the Internet. We thank the entire multistakeholder community for their hard work and attention to this important task,” said Upton, Walden, and Shimkus. "Now we in the U.S. government must do our work. We look forward to reviewing the proposal and to the thoughtful analysis from NTIA as we look to whether this proposal meets the U.S. government's requirements for the transition and the needs of the American people. This final step of removing U.S. government oversight of the IANA functions is irreversible and we must be sure the transition will not harm the Internet or the millions of Americans that rely on it. There are no do-overs. Once the U.S. relinquishes its role in IANA, that’s it, there’s no going back. We must get it right." On Thursday, March 17th, the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology will hold a hearing on "Privatizing the Internet Assigned Number Authority” to begin consideration of the proposal. The subcommittee will hear from a cross-section of stakeholders that participated in the development of the proposal." (emphasis added)
