Senate Votes Yes to Save Net Neutrality - But What's Next?

The Senate Passes Legislation to Save Net Neutrality Roman White

Senator Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, said in a speech before the vote to get in touch with Republican senator.

All 49 Democrats voted in favor, as well as Republican Senators Susan Collins of Maine; John Kennedy of Louisiana and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

The bill would reverse a decision the FCC made last December, to undo net neutrality rules, put in place by the Obama administration. "Net neutrality protected everyone. that era, the era of an open Internet, will unfortunately soon come to an end".

Republicans like Rep. Scott Taylor of Virginia think Democrats are wrong on the policy of net neutrality and that eliminating FCC rules will expand competition and consumer choice.

Even if the resolution fails, many states, including California and NY, are doing all they can to fight back against the FCC's decision with their own net neutrality proposals. His reform efforts have previously had support from President Donald Trump, who would need to sign the resolution before it could take effect, in addition to the House approval. Critics, including the Trump administration, believed this ruling was stifling innovation.

Wednesday the Senate voted 52-47, with all Democrats and three Republicans in the majority, to kill the FCC rule favoring a handful of large corporations and restore, as law, "net neutrality" as the internet's governing principle.

"It's disappointing that Senate Democrats forced this resolution through by a narrow margin", he said dismissively but with a pained expression that had viewers reaching for their phones and Twitter. If somehow the proposal eventually delivers to President Trump's desk, it's likewise supposed that he wouldn't hinder the decision to go versus an organization created by his own FCC chairman Ajit Pai.

"The promise of an open internet is foundational to providing equitable learning opportunities to all students, not just those who can afford them", said Richard Culatta, CEO at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), in a prepared statement.

And the FCC, a politicized and gridlocked regulatory commission that was designed in the era when radio was king, probably shouldn't be making those decisions either. "I'll keep raising a ruckus to support net neutrality and I hope others will too", she said, looking directly into the camera.

The FCC has made abundantly clear that states may not impose "any so-called "economic" or "public utility-type" regulation []" on broadband services and that federal law flatly preempts such requirements. Evan Greer, deputy director of the group Fight for the Future, disagrees and said most Americans don't want their cable companies controlling what they see and do on the internet. But with the Republicans in power, the big ISPs have been putting all of their eggs into that basket, spreading misinformation that targets conservatives and trying to turn the net neutrality debate into a political circus.
