Eshoo Statement on NTIA's Announcement to Transition IANA Functions

March 18th, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-Palo Alto), Ranking Member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee, issued the following statement in response to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration announcement to transition key Internet domain name functions to the global multistakeholder community:

“Multistakeholder governance of the Internet is essential to preserving a global Internet driven by choice, competition and innovation, and making it a revolutionary tool for commerce and freedom of expression. I’ve long held the belief and championed the U.S. support for the successful multistakeholder model for Internet governance.

“I welcome the announcement by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration to transition from its role in coordinating the Internet’s domain name system to a multistakeholder governance community, guided by the principles of an open, secure, stable and resilient Internet.”
