The Subcommittee on Communications and Technology will discuss the Obama administration’s announcement of plans for a process that could remove the United States Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration from its oversight role of critical Internet functions. Members will hear from stakeholders to learn about where the transition stands and the effects it may have on the Internet. Members will also review the Domain Openness Through Continued Oversight Matters (DOTCOM) Act (H.R. 805). The bill would provide the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office one year to study these potential consequences before the transition could occur.
