WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Congressman Fred Upton of St. Joseph is joining with other lawmakers to work on preserving Internet freedom. Speaking to the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, the Republican talked about trying to advance legislation aimed at ensuring that freedom and openness remain among the principal tenants of the Internet.

The Obama administration recently proposed removing the United States from its oversight role of the Domain Name System.
