Senate Appropriations Committee Critical of NTIA Role Within ICANN’s Governmental Advisory Committee

On July 18th the Senate Appropriations Committee issued Report 113—78 on S. 1329, the “DEPARTMENTS OF COMMERCE AND JUSTICE, AND SCIENCE, AND RELATED AGENCIES APPROPRIATIONS BILL, 2014”. Philip Corwin reporting in a post on Internet Commerce Association website: “The Report contains language that is harshly critical of the role played by the National Telecommunications and Information Agency (NTIA) within ICANN’s Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC), and would require NTIA to report back within thirty days after enactment of this spending measure on ICANN’s compliance with the Affirmation of Commitments and whether the new gTLD program is proceeding in a manner consistent with cybersecurity concerns.”

Thanks for noting my article—but is was the Senate Appropriations Committee that was critical of NTIA, not the Department of Commerce.
