Net Neutrality an issue too important to ignore

Print Article

Net Neutrality is a policy issue that has been bouncing between Congress and the FCC for 15 years now. Currently, with Trump Administration reversing the Obama FCC’s regulations and the House of Representatives passing the Obama FCC’s regulations but the Senate Republicans declaring them “dead on arrival,” there are no federal net neutrality protections in place for consumers.

Given the role the internet plays now in our daily lives, that is simply unacceptable. Congress must act to ensure that consumers have access to an open internet and should not fear that their access to websites or applications could be blocked or impaired by their internet service provider. I urge Senator Daines and Senator Tester to get to work on a compromise bill that could be supported by both Democrats, Republicans, and Trump. This issue is too important to be held up by partisanship.
