Net Neutrality Rules 'Heavy-Handed,' McConnell Argues

Effort to reinstate net neutrality Senate Democrats push to block net neutrality repeal using Congressional Review Act

Edward Markey (D-Mass.) - enables Congress to overturn agency actions within a certain timeframe and by majority vote. "Republicans and Democrats alike should want to provide the small business community with the certainty that the Internet will remain an equal playing field".

Kennedy told IJR that his "yes" vote came down to whether or not people could trust the cable companies to keep a free and open internet.

Repealing net neutrality rules was one of Pai's primary objectives when he was appointed as chairman of the Commission by President Trump past year.

Senate votes to save net neutrality; resolution...

The repeal effort led by Senate Democrats faces a significant hurdle in the House and an even greater one in the White House, but Democrats hope to rally support from young voters as they head to the ballot box in the 2018 midterm elections. "Speaker Ryan should listen".

"Today, we show the American people who sides with them, and who sides with the powerful special interests and corporate donors who are thriving under this administration", Markey said to the Senate. The bill will now move to the House, where another majority vote is required, but Republicans have stronger control, with 235 members versus the Democrats' 193.

Independent of the Senate action today, several states including Washington, Oregon, California and NY, have either proposed net neutrality-like legislation or sought to take legal action to nullify the FCC repeal.

Roger Nishi, vice president of industry relations at Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom, said the federal regulations will not impact their services.

Daines has previously condemned net neutrality; in 2016, he released a statement saying it "remains a solution in search of a problem that kills jobs, chills innovation and slows investment". Chairman Wheeler's Net Neutrality is, in a nutshell, zero-price wholesale rate regulation without due process.

Thune noted that he was "more than willing to enter into a debate to flawless this piece of legislation" rather than "waste more time, valuable time, in a cloud of uncertainty where one FCC to the next continues to change the rules". Under the new rules, providers would be allowed to open fast lanes to websites that pay them. "My guess is 90 percent of Americans support fuzzy bunny rabbit", Cruz said.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai called the vote disappointing but added that "ultimately, I'm confident that their effort to reinstate heavy-handed government regulation of the Internet will fail".

Net neutrality supporters note that 15 Republicans crossed the aisle in March 2017 on another internet issue. Thune and other Republican lawmakers have proposed their own net neutrality legislation. Today's vote is a sign that the fight for internet freedom is far from over.
