Pallone & Doyle on Court's Net Neutrality Decision

Oct 1, 2019
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Communications and Technology Chairman Mike Doyle (D-PA) issued the following statement today after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia vacated part of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) 2017 rules that repealed net neutrality protections and opened the door for states to pass net neutrality laws:

“The Trump Administration’s decision to abandon net neutrality continues to harm consumers and small businesses, leaving a few large corporations in control of an essential component of modern life.  In April, the House passed the Save the Internet Act to restore basic consumer protections online and preserve a free and open Internet.  This decision reiterates that the Senate needs to act quickly to pass that legislation to put Americans, not corporations, first.”
