Press Release

Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ), released the following statement after the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) issued its review of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) transition and accountability proposals:

“Last year, I worked with my colleagues to craft the DOTCOM Act, which laid out a framework for Congressional oversight of the IANA transition process.  I’m grateful that the NTIA did such a thorough job following our framework and giving Congress time to thoroughly review the findings before the transition takes place.  I look forward to continuing a dialogue with NTIA and the multi-stakeholder community as we move through this process.”
