Blunt Rochester Issues Statement After FCC Votes to End Net Neutrality Protections
Washington, D.C.— Today, Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester (DE-AL) issued the following statement after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to end the 2015 net neutrality protections.
“I am deeply concerned by the FCC’s move to strike Obama-era net neutrality protections, despite strong support among Americans for internet freedom,” said Congresswoman Blunt Rochester. “I firmly believe Congress, not the FCC, should take up the mantle in determining how to preserve and protect net neutrality. We need to do it in a way that promotes choice and fairness for small businesses, entrepreneurs, and everyday Americans, while paving the way for economic growth and marketplace innovation. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to find a legislative fix that strikes that very balance.”
