From another mailing to Mr Evans on 6th August:

    During our February 8th hearing, the Subcommittee Members and witnesses stated that the current TLD selection process was in need of revision. We believe that the process should be based on established objective criteria and be carried out in a transparent process with clear accountability and processes for redress. These factors should be taken into account as ICANN moves forward with the selection of new TLDs. We ask that the Department of Commerce continue to closely monitor this process. The Committee on Energy and Commerce, for its part, expects to hold more hearings throughout this Congress to monitor ICANNís progress.

We would appreciate periodic updates. Please contact any or all of us, or have your staff contact Kelly Zerzan, Majority Counsel at (202) 226-2424, Will Nordwind, Subcommittee Counsel at (202) 225-2927, Brendan Kelsay, Minority Professional Staff at (202) 226-3400, or Colin Crowell, Legislative Assistant for Rep. Markey at (202) 225-2836, should you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to hearing from you further on this important issue.

Sincerely,

W.J. "Billy" Tauzin,Chairman,Committee on Energy and Commerce 
John D. Dingell,Ranking Member,Committee on Energy and Commerce
Fred Upton,Chairman,Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet
