Congress is trying to destroy Net Neutrality

Congress is trying to destroy Net Neutrality. Again.

Rep. Doug Collins just introduced a "resolution of disapproval" designed to overturn the FCC's Net Neutrality rules.

Under the Congressional Review Act, Congress has the power to review — and invalidate — any new rules issued by federal agencies. The resolution of disapproval already has 12 co-sponsors.
Rep. Collins is working for Team Cable and ignoring the millions of Internet users like you who spoke out for real Net Neutrality. Tell your member of Congress to vote AGAINST this resolution.

This move is just the latest assault on the Net Neutrality rules, which also came under scrutiny at five congressional hearings in March. Since then, two lawsuits challenging the rules have been filed, and more are on the way. Various pieces of legislation are in the works to destroy Net Neutrality or defund the FCC and make it impossible for it to enforce any open Internet protections.
We fought hard to win real Net Neutrality — and now we need to fight twice as hard to defend it.

Let's stop Team Cable. Tell your member of Congress to oppose this dangerous resolution.

Thanks for all that you do—

Candace, Amy and the rest of the Free Press Action Fund
