Ted Cruz is going to speak live at 3PM ET at the Heritage Foundation on the US transitioning away from internet governance in September:

But is the so-called “IANA Transition” a good idea? Should we rush the Transition to get it done before the election, even if it means jeopardizing free expression and enterprise online? Will the proposed accountability and transparency safeguards really be enough? And either way, what might happen in the courts?
