Senator Coleman Introduces Senate Resoultion on Internet Governance

Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN) introduced a Sense of the Senate Resolution on Monday (Senate Resolution 273) that expresses resistance to transferring control over the Internet from the United States to the United Nations or another international body.

From the Senator's press release expressing four governing principles articulated by the Bush administration:

  • Preservation of the security and stability of the Internet domain name and addressing system (DNS);
  • Recognition of the legitimate interest of governments in managing their own country code top-level domains;
  • Support for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) as the appropriate technical manager of the Internet DNS;
  • Participation in continuing dialogue on Internet governance in multiple existing fora, with continued support for market-based approaches toward, and private sector leadership of, its further evolution.
