Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coaliton) Co-Founder and Board Chair Christian Dawson released the following statement on the USA Freedom Act failing to proceed for debate on the Senate floor:
“After spending more than five hours debating on the Keystone XL Pipeline, the U.S. Senate spent less than 20 minutes debating the USA Freedom Act, an issue of incredible importance to our privacy and national security. i2Coalition is committed to continuing the fight for surveillance reform. U.S. Internet infrastructure companies are world leaders in innovation, and the NSA’s surveillance programs have shaken confidence in them. i2Coalition looks forward to working to ensure that these infrastructure providers that make up the nuts and bolts of the Internet have the level playing field they deserve to thrive.”
The Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition) supports those who build the nuts and bolts of the Internet, and we treat it like the noble profession that it is. We believe the continued growth of the Internet is vital for growing an environment of innovation and seek to engage in ways to foster success of the Internet and Internet infrastructure industry. We seek to influence decision makers to weigh decisions on whether they are good or bad for the Internet economy and its foundational industries. In short, we seek to foster growth within the Internet infrastructure industry by driving others to harness the Internet’s full potential. To learn more about i2Coalition, visit www.i2Coalition.com.
