House passes bill to restore 'net neutrality' rules

House of Representatives passes bill to restore net neutrality House Democrats Pass Bill To Make Net Neutrality Great Again

In the House, Democrats occupy more seats, hence why the bill was able to pass a vote-only one Republican broke from party lines to vote in favor of the bill, according to Politico. This bill would force the FCC to regulate the internet in the same way it regulates TV for example.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday the bill overturning a Federal Communications Commission December 2017 repeal would be "dead on arrival" in the Senate.

Net neutrality, which became law under President Obama, was repealed by the Republican-controlled FCC of Donald Trump.

"I think the president, as he heads into 2020, when he sees a groundswell, a juggernaut coming at him, I think he's going to change", Wyden said ahead of the House vote. "To prevent a Senate vote on this bill would be wrong, politically short-sighted and an underestimation of the internet's readiness to mobilize and fight for Net Neutrality". Aides to the president also issued an official notice Monday that they would recommend a veto of the bill, arguing it would "return to the heavy-handed regulatory approach of the previous administration". Brian Schatz of Hawaii, a top Democrat on the tech-focused Senate Commerce Committee, said in an interview last week.

Net neutrality is a topic we have covered extensively in the past, including what it means for PC gaming. So they're not interested in establishing a statute.

I think qualifying was okay in the last race, but in the race there was a big delta, and I hope this weekend is closer between us. Still, the reigning world champion fears that Ferrari's power output and straight-line speed "might serve them really well here".

"I don't know if they'll pass this bill", he said in an interview.

While this is an important step forward if bringing back Net Neutrality, there's still a lot of work that needs to be done in order for it to be restored. "They may differ on how and what it should cover, but they still think we should do it".

A bill to reverse the reversal of net neutrality rules was approved in the US House of Representatives by a 232-190 vote, though it will likely be shot down in the Senate.

The net-neutrality saga continued as tech companies and almost two dozen USA states sued to undo the 2017 repeal and restore the 2015 measure. Unfortunately for net neutrality advocates, the proposed legislation now faces significant roadblocks. Some agreed not to enforce the laws pending the outcome of the Mozilla case.
