What Congress is Doing About 'Net Neutrality" Overrreach

david_schweikert.jpegCongressman David Schweikert tells us what’s moving in Congress regarding the FCC’s recent decisions on Net Neutrality and Broadband.

The day after the FCC’s decision to preempt state laws regarding municipal broadband requirements, David cosponsored Marsha Blackburn’s bill – HR 1106 – to rein in the FCC’s power grab by not allowing them to intervene in state laws and rights. If you would like to read more about the bill, visit this link.  

Another bill David has cosponsored (also from Rep. Blackburn’s office) is HR 1212, The Internet Freedom Act. This bill prohibits the FCC from reclassifying broadband Internet access service as a telecommunications service and from imposing certain regulations on providers of such service – essentially rendering their February 26th decision ineffective. You can read more about the bill here.
