Global Effort to Regulate Internet Shot Down In U.S. Congress


illeana ros lehtinenAnother win for the U.S. against the continued efforts by globalist to try to regulate the internet. The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously pass a bill that “declares that it is the policy of the United States to preserve and advance the successful multistakeholder model that governs the internet.

What this means is that civil society, academia, private sector, and individual users can operate free of government control over content or freedom of expression.

“The Internet is possibly the most important technological advancement since the printing press. Governments’ hands off approach has enabled the Internet’s rapid growth and made it a powerful engine of social and economic freedom. This bipartisan bill is designed to combat recent efforts by some in the international community to regulate the Internet, which could jeopardize not only its vibrancy, but also the benefits it brings to the world.” –Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR)

Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen also offered remarks regarding the passage of the bill that keeps governments from controlling the internet.

“Governments, whether here at home or abroad, should not be in the business of controlling the Internet. In order to promote innovation, democratization, and access to information, we must ensure the Internet is kept free from the kind of government overreach and stifling regulations that have become all too common. The Internet must remain an unconstrained environment in which all sectors of society can compete, freely express their ideas, and not have to wonder whether their safety or human rights are in jeopardy.

“United States policy should reflect the fact that a free and open world depends on a free and open web. I am proud to vote for legislation that affirms this policy and urge my Senate colleagues to do the same.” –Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen(R-FL)
