"In a rare showing of bipartisanship, the House unanimously passed a
resolution to ban UN regulation of the internet at the hands of the ITU
(International Telecommunication Union). It
the US would "continue working to implement the position of the United
States on internet governance that clearly articulates the consistent and
unequivocal policy of the United States to promote a global internet free
from government control."
"The 1988 treaty does indeed need an update, but US and Canada along with

expressed a strong desire to limit any new policies from impacting how the
web is run. Their efforts have so far been for naught, but Congress is
hoping that such a unified stance from the US will help sway the votes that
are due to happen later this week in Dubai."
