Luján, Colleagues Applaud FCC Vote to Restore Net Neutrality

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), Chair of the Commerce Subcommittee on Communications, Media, and Broadband, and U.S. Senators Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.), Peter Welch (D-Vt.), Angus King (I-Maine), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i), Raphael Warnock (D-GA), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.), and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) issued the following statement applauding the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) vote to restore net neutrality:

“We applaud the leadership of Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel and Commissioners Geoffrey Starks and Anna Gomez for taking an important step to restore net neutrality protections for consumers, small businesses, and the American people. The decision to repeal net neutrality protections in 2017 went against strong public support and jeopardized a free and open internet. Today’s vote restores the FCC’s Title II authority over the most popular communication today: broadband internet. This will safeguard national security, advance public safety, and protect consumers. We commend the FCC for taking action to connect our constituents to broadband and move toward 100% connectivity.”


Earlier this month, Senator Luján issued a statement in support of the FCC’s circulation of a final rule to reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service under Title II of the Communications Act, setting up a return to net neutrality and the FCC’s oversight of broadband internet.
