Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coaliton) Co-Founder and Board Chair Christian Dawson released the following statement as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid prepares next week to bring the USA Freedom Act to a vote on the Senate floor:
“The USA Freedom Act strikes the right balance between privacy and safety, and the i2Coalition is pleased to see it coming to a vote on the Senate floor. Passage of the USA Freedom Act would restore the confidence in U.S. Internet infrastructure companies that they deserve, and hold U.S. intelligence agencies to privacy norms that are recognized internationally. The Senate should come together in a bipartisan manner next week and pass this important legislation.”
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.
