Congressional Democrats expect to unveil legislation tomorrow to overturn the Trump administration's repeal of net neutrality rules, according to House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Now that House Democrats control Congress they hope to pass the "Save the Internet Act," the speaker told lawmakers in a letter. They expect to propose the Act at 11:15 a.m. ET on Wednesday, March 6, in the Rayburn Room of the US Capitol, Pelosi wrote.
Democrats need only one Republican vote to pass the legislation, tweeted Representative Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas), noting the bill faces a more rigorous battle in the House.
Positively Against Net Neutrality's End
Since Day One, Democrats like Representative Lloyd Doggett of Texas, free-speech advocates and numerous businesses have proclaimed their disagreement with the current FCC's stance on net neutrality.
The Federal Communications Commission tossed out net neutrality when it reversed the Obama administration's model of a utility-style regulatory approach and replaced it with current FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's "light touch" policy. The Trump-era FCC used its "Restoring Internet Freedom" Act to reclassify Internet service providers under Title I and gave the Federal Trade Commission oversight for providers.
Lawsuits follow each change in classification and ruling. (One such case, Mozilla versus FCC, went to court this month and now awaits word from the District of Columbia's Court of Appeals.) But if the vast majority of members of the House of Representatives and Congress enact a law -- with enough of a majority to withstand a presidential veto -- that would, most likely, end the net neutrality seesaw.
