Senate Bill to Reverse Net Neutrality Repeal to Get Floor Vote

Senate bill to reverse net neutrality repeal gains 30th co-sponsor, ensuring floor vote
"Millions of people from across the political spectrum fought hard to win the Title II net neutrality protections that the FCC just callously slashed at the behest of telecom lobbyists", Greer said in a statement.
Legislation to restore the net neutrality rules has garnered enough co-sponsors to come to the Senate floor.
Still, the CRA resolution is a symbolic move, and it'll keep the battle for net neutrality in the spotlight.
In a statement following McCaskill's announcement, Matt Wood, policy director of the Free Press Action Fund, urged Senate holdouts to listen closely to the Americans who have "logged more than a million calls to Congress to reject FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's decision to kill net neutrality".
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.
Thirty senators have now signed on to cosponsor a resolution that would nullify the repeal, MA senator Ed Markeyannounced Monday on Twitter. According to the act, only a simple majority of 50 votes is required to get past the Senate.
Although Democrats now have the votes to force the resolution to a vote in the Senate, they have much steeper barriers to getting it enacted. The CRA gives Congress the power to pass a "resolution of disapproval" to nullify new regulations within a 60-day window. Last June, Mozilla reported that a survey it conducted with Ipsos found that 81% of Democrats and 73% of Republicans support net neutrality principles.
The state-by-state legislation being introduced could become the subject of a second net neutrality-related lawsuit.
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". In the days before the FCC's vote last month, the online giants took few overt steps to voice opposition to repealing the rules.
Meanwhile, a separate effort to overturn the FCC's net-neutrality repeal has been gaining momentum.
