Democrats unveil bill to revive net neutrality
08 March, 2019, 22:41
Democrats in the home and Senate launched a bill on Wednesday that might restore Obama-period net neutrality guidelines, a response to a December 2017 vote by the Federal Communications Fee that mainly gutted the laws that have been put in place by the Democrat-managed FCC in 2015. In 2017, the FCC repealed rules that prohibited internet service providers from blocking, slowing down, or discriminating against content online. It repeals the Restoring Internet Freedom Act, which the FCC passed and rescinded the rules on. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), Rep. Yvette Clark (D-N.Y.), Sen.
FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks said he was "pleased" with the proposed legislation.
Markey, who was at the head of the CRA effort in the Senate previous year, echoed Doyle.
Trump weighed in on net neutrality before, displaying a very limited grasp of what the concept actually means - but generally taking a stance against it. "Today we take another important step in that fight". And we're going to keep doing it until we get the Internet we deserve.
In her speech, Pelosi reported that 86 percent of Americans opposed President Trump's assault on net neutrality-including 82 percent of Republicans. This Congress won't fall to his special interest agenda and his broadband barren allies. We create community-driven campaigns to engage, educate, and empower people to safeguard the Internet. "It begins today and this coalition will not stop until we win". But forcing a vote in the Senate will require more cooperation from Republicans than past year.
Pelosi said the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology would be holding hearings next week.
A number of internet rights advocacy groups applauded the announcement on Wednesday. "We need the same rules for the internet", said Sen.
Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon wouldn't be able to block, speed up or slow down access to websites and services under the bill introduced by the congressman from western Pennsylvania. Indeed, they seem to have no intention of working with their Republican counterparts to resolve the question of an open internet, but instead plan to jam through legislation that would permanently impose antiquated Title II rotary dial telephone common carriage regulations (including rate regulation) on internet service providers (ISPs). Not only were there costs to complying with the regulations, critics say, but the way they were written left the door open to direct price regulation of Internet access. It also reinstated broadband providers under a Title II classification, which allowed them prioritize some types of internet traffic and set pricing. "Lawmakers should not be fooled-no other legislation in Congress comes close to ensuring these strong protections, and the public will settle for nothing less".
When the FCC announced its intention to repeal the 2015 Open Internet Order, Americans spoke up.
Markey tweeted a copy of the act, what he called "three pages that will restore net neutrality".
