I'm writing to strongly oppose the proposed removal of gTLD fee increase
caps for .org, .info, and .biz domains. Unlimited price increases on these
TLDs will harm nonprofits and libraries working for the public.

I manage .org and .info domains on behalf of public libraries in
Wisconsin's South Central Library System. Access to affordably-priced
domains remains important to being able to effectively provide library
services. It is not realistic to go back to using the old .lib.wi.us domain
names, which are clunky, error-prone, and hated by both librarians and the
public. Library users know and trust libraries' .org and .info domain
names. Higher prices and price fluctuation on .org and .info domains will
siphon public libraries' and nonprofits' limited budget dollars away from
providing materials and services to the public.

Library service to the public should never be reduced simply to increase
profits for the Public Interest Registry. I oppose removing price caps on
.org, .info, and .biz top level domains.
