TechNet Applauds Congress for Resisting Delay of the IANA Transition
Washington — TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, today applauded Congress for resisting efforts to delay the transition of the Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA). The following can be attributed to Linda Moore, president and CEO of TechNet.
“Congress today refused to delay the transition of the Internet Assigned Number Authority, known as IANA. This transition has bipartisan support and has been planned for years.
If the transition doesn’t move forward, it could create a fractured Internet. Potentially, some countries could wall off access to prevent communication with the rest of the world. Furthermore, a delay could threaten the open flow of information over the Internet, disrupt global commerce, and adversely affect American interests.
We applaud Congress for resisting efforts to delay the IANA transition.”
