Washington, D.C. – Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman issues the following statement in support of the DOTCOM Act:

“The Internet Association applauds Chairman Walden, Ranking Member Pallone, and Rep. Shimkus on the bipartisan DOTCOM Act. Congress has an important oversight role to play in the ICANN transition, as the seamless operation of the Internet is at stake.
