LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King today released a joint statement outlining their support for a bipartisan Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to restore net neutrality, which the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) repealed in December:
“With the protections made possible under net neutrality, businesses in Maine and across our country are ensured equal access to the Internet so they can innovate, grow, and compete in the global economy. Repealing these protections would affect every sector of the U.S. economy, jeopardize the ability of Americans in rural areas to realize the Internet’s full potential, and impede the Internet’s ability to serve our democracy,” said Senators Collins and King. “For these reasons, we will support legislation that will overturn the repeal of net neutrality so that the Internet can remain a level playing field for every American. We believe that a more careful, deliberative process involving experts and the public is warranted to ensure that consumers have strong protections against discriminatory practices.”
