Senate Bill to Restore Net Neutrality Achieves Important Milestone

Tech giants' net neutrality legal challenge

Republicans now hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate, meaning two GOP Senators would need to go against the party for the vote to pass.

Those lawsuits won't be filed until the repeal hits the Federal Register sometime later this month, and will focus on how the FCC ignored the public, experts, and objective data as it rushed to kill popular net neutrality rules at the behest of AT&T, Verizon and Comcast. Net neutrality-the principal that Internet service providers must treat all data on the Internet equally and not block, throttle, or charge extra or access to it-has been vital to growth of the Internet.

"We won't let the Trump-led FCC dismantle our right to a free and open internet, and we won't let them create a system where internet providers can favor web sites and services based on who pays more money", Wiener said.

Packers to name Gutekunst new GM
Schneider, a Wisconsin native, was the director of football operations for the Packers before being hired by the Seahawks in 2010. Green Bay (7-9) finished with a losing record and out of the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

The battle over net neutrality has raged for over a decade in the FCC and the courts, with both sides contending they represent "internet freedom". Ed Markey a Democrat from Mass. said in a statement Monday.

The resolution was drafted under the Congressional Review Act, which gives Congress the authority to overturn new regulations issued by federal agencies on a simple majority vote of both houses. If more than 50 senators vote for the bill, the FCC's recent vote will be overturned, and the Obama-era net neutrality rules will remain in place. The fact that no Republicans have signed on to the resolution likely means it would be defeated in a floor vote. It's starting to get real as the IA said they are looking to take legal action and provide as much legislative support as possible in the fight against the net neutrality repeal. Currently, no Republican legislator has expressed support for the resolution.

If net neutrality protections pass in California, we'll be a model for other states, and make it harder for Comcast, Verizon, and other big telecom companies to justify anti-consumer schemes that violate net neutrality elsewhere in the country. Given that Republicans have nearly unanimously supported the FCC's new rules, the prospects for the CRA are dim.

The FCC's vote to repeal net neutrality left many shocked, unsure of where to go from here.
