Senate bill to preserve net neutrality wins first GOP endorsement

Senate bill to preserve net neutrality wins first GOP endorsement

Lawmakers will have 60 days after the FCC's regulations are submitted to pass the bill.

That doesn't mean Net Neutrality is dead forever, though.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said on Monday that she was the 30th senator to sign on to a plan to use a procedural rule to vote on a reversal of the FCC's actions.

The FCC order grants internet providers sweeping new powers to block, throttle or discriminate among internet content, but requires public disclosure of those practices. Last June, Mozilla reported that a survey it conducted with Ipsos found that 81% of Democrats and 73% of Republicans support net neutrality principles.

"I dissent from this fiercely-spun, legally-lightweight, consumer-harming, corporate-enabling Destroying Internet Freedom Order", writes FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn in a whopping 281-page statement. A University of Maryland poll from December 2017 found that more than 83 percent of voters favor keeping the rules, including 75 percent of Republicans, 89 percent of Democrats and 86 percent of independents.

Markey's bill, a Congressional Resolution of Disapproval, needed at least 29 co-sponsors to force a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.

In short, there are no special rules in the House to guarantee a vote on the CRA resolution. 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.

Speaking with the unified voice of the Internet Association, a trade group representing social media platforms, ride sharing companies and all manner of entertainment, the websites we live on announced their intent to join lawsuits against the FCC's proposed changes to net neutrality.

By forcing a floor vote on the resolution to nullify the repeal, supporters of net neutrality could make Republican legislators go on record about their stance - something that could become a campaign issue in this fall's midterm elections.

He continued: "Regardless of party affiliation, all elected officials should stand with their constituents and restore the 2015 protections that protect free speech, choice, and innovation online". 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.
