Press Release

Congressman Lamborn has voiced his support for two pieces of legislation that will affect the future of the Internet. He supports H.R. 5418, the Protecting Internet Freedom Act, which accompanies Senator Cruz's Senate bill. Congressman Lamborn also cosponsored H.Res. 853, to authorize the Speaker of the House to intervene in civil action against the executive branch.

The Congressman has released the following statement regarding ICANN and the potential transition of the Internet:

"I have received many phone calls and letters from my constituents in Colorado who are concerned with the security of the Internet. I am pleased to support these important pieces of legislation to ensure that our internet remains free, open, and secure. It is my hope that these two bills will prevent the U.S. government from ceding control of the Internet to an international body and will protect American citizens' innovation and freedom of speech."

- Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
