LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) cosponsored a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to overturn the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) decision to repeal net neutrality rules. The resolution would fully restore the 2015 Open Internet Order.
“There is no single tool more important to success in the 21st century economy than the open internet,” said Senator King. “The framework established by net neutrality allows small businesses in Maine and across the country to compete in a global economy, ensures consumers are protected, and helps Americans of all backgrounds pursue educational, economic and social opportunities. The free and open internet is an engine of innovation that plays a vital role in American life, and I’m proud to stand with my Senate colleagues to defend it.”
