IPC President and CEO John Mitchell released a statement on final passage of the National Defense Authorization Act.
“President Trump's threat to veto the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) unless it includes a repeal of Section 230 imperils passage of legislation critical to U.S. military readiness. Tying an unrelated, controversial legislative priority related to liability for content posted on online platforms to the must-pass defense bill creates an unnecessary game of political chicken where, regardless of the outcome, the American people lose.
“IPC urges President Trump and the members of Congress to stay focused on the issues central to the nation’s defense with the goal of enacting the NDAA into law next week.”
