Senate passes measure repealing changes to net neutrality rules

However, the Republican-led House of Representatives is unlikely to take up the measure. The resolution passed with the backing of all 49 Democratic senators and three Republicans: Susan Collins of Maine, John N. Kennedy of Louisiana and Lisa A. Murkowski of Alaska.
After the vote, Murkowski described herself as "frustrated" by the politics of the net neutrality debate that she says hurts her large and rural state, which has unique internet needs. He said Democrats would try to make it a campaign issue if Republicans will not allow a vote.
The resolution has to pass in the House, to keep moving forward. "When are we going to get down to the actual legislation that both sides profess we need to have?"
It's a last-ditch effort led by Democratic senators to take legislative action to overrule the Federal Communications Commission, which voted in December to repeal net neutrality rules.
The Congressional Review Act allows senators that secure enough support to bring a vote to the floor, even without the approval of the majority leader in the Senate. Now, equal access means equal access to the tools of economic opportunity.
He continued: "The Democratic position is very simple". In a statement, she said, "The agency failed to listen to the American public and gave short shrift to their deeply held believe that internet openness should remain the law of the land".
Following the Senate's vote, the question of whether net neutrality should be saved will be posed to the US House of Representatives.
Don't expect the House to go along with the Senate on this. Democrats think the fight to restore the rules could be a political victor during November's congressional midterm elections even if the effort is unsuccessful, as it will force Republicans to record a vote against reinstating the rules.
"Moreover, contrary to the scare tactics employed by Senate Democrats, which earned three Pinocchios from the Washington Post's fact-checker, our light-touch approach will deliver better, faster, and cheaper Internet access and more broadband competition to the American people-something that millions of consumers desperately want and something that should be a top priority".
Schumer responded, "low bar" and the lawmakers laughed.
47 of the Senate Republicans voted to keep FCC'sdecision in place.
Net neutrality rules, enacted under fomer President Barack Obama, prevented internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon from forcing customers to pay extra to access certain websites, or slowing down traffic speeds to certain websites.
Political commentators say that it's highly unlikely Trump will sign the resolution, because the White House backed the FCC ruling and he also signed a Congressional Review Act a year ago, overturning other FCC rules that implemented better privacy protection for internet users. "We show the American people who sides with them, and who sides with the powerful special interests and corporate donors who are thriving under this administration".
