House of Representatives passes bill to restore net neutrality

House Democrats Pass Bill To Make Net Neutrality Great Again

The bill passed the Democrat-controlled House by a vote of 232-190. This legislation will put net neutrality protections back in place that keep the internet fair and open for families and small businesses in New Hampshire. The White House has suggested President Trump would veto the measure if it reached his desk. "This bill should not and will not become law". We thank Speaker Pelosi and Representatives Pallone and Doyle for their leadership and advocacy to push this bill through the House of Representatives. Congressional leaders of both parties support these "bright line" rules, and the Save the Internet Act would enshrine these consumer protections in law and ensure large cable and telecom companies couldn't lobby the FCC to thwart the will of the public. The FCC was established to promote and police the communications networks of this country. The legislation restores the FCC's carefully crafted and narrowly tailored 2015 Open Internet Order. "I urge my colleagues in the Senate to swiftly bring this bill to a vote". Without net neutrality protections, our art and voices are subject to discriminatory actors who hold the power to silence our community.

A coalition of internet companies, net neutrality advocates, and state attorneys general is suing the FCC, asking a federal court to reverse the repeal of net neutrality rules.

"I don't know if they'll pass this bill", he said in an interview.

Chairman Ajit Pai released a statement Wednesday criticizing the "so-called "Save the Internet" Act". "Is government going to be in charge or are we going to have an Internet that is going to innovate and [adhere to] consumers first?" There's a lot of common ground on net neutrality. This bill would force the FCC to regulate the internet in the same way it regulates TV for example. "It is a political statement built on a broken abomination of an FCC rulemaking".

Some analysts have argued for a compromise that would bar internet firms from noncompetitive practices without using utility-style regulation.

"The one positive aspect that emerged from this gamesmanship is House Democrats' firm declaration against taxing the Internet via USF fees". "This isn't a partisan issue", he added.
