Senate Democrats get votes to advance Net neutrality save

Senate Democrats get votes to advance Net neutrality save

Now the resolution goes to the House of Representatives and potentially President Donald Trump.

The Senate has taken action to protect net neutrality rules set to end next month.

Still, Democrats are already using their messaging in campaign material. Democrats are using the Congressional Review Act to try and reverse the FCC's repeal.

With voting still ongoing, supporters had 51 votes to proceed to the bill while 46 Republicans have voted no.

Lobby groups representing all the major cable companies, telecoms and mobile carriers urged senators to reject the attempt to restore net neutrality rules. "They are with the special interests, and we are with the people".

Back in December, the FCC confirmed internet users' fears when it voted to repeal net neutrality rules, but yesterday saw the US Senate vote to overturn the decision.

Republicans insist they, too, believe in net neutrality, but want to safeguard it by crafting forward-looking legislation rather than reimposing an outdated regulatory structure.

What do you hear? 'Yanny' vs 'Laurel' dividing the internet
Maybe the great " Yanny or Laurel " debate of 2018 will see both of these names feature more prominently in next year's rankings. But I must know, what do you hear? First of all, the clip is, according to Sanker "not prototypical" of either laurel or yanny .

"This is our chance, our best chance to make sure the internet stays accessible and affordable to all Americans", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from NY.

Additionally, a Nexis search for "net neutrality" produced zero results among the nation's top newspapers, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the New York Post, and USA Today. Angus King of Maine and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, as well as three Republicans - Susan Collins of Maine, John Kennedy of Louisiana and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. The net neutrality rules, approved by the same organization two years earlier, prohibited internet service providers - such as Comcast and Verizon - from speeding up or slowing down traffic from specific websites and apps. "This is a huge momentum creator, especially with three Republican votes".

The 52-47 vote, which saw three Republicans vote against their own side, used the Congressional Review Act - one of the checks and balances specifically created to fix problems caused by government agencies headed up by people who think they cool, but they not. Tech giants such as Google and Facebook have been vocal in their support for the retention of the rules.

Republicans said the regulations threaten heavy-handed government intrusion that would stifle innovation on the Internet. Democrats think the fight to restore the rules could be a political victor during November's congressional midterm elections even if the effort is unsuccessful, as it will force Republicans to record a vote against reinstating the rules.

Even if the resolution fails, many states, including California and NY, are doing all they can to fight back against the FCC's decision with their own net neutrality proposals. "Small business owners across New Hampshire have told me that the FCC's decision to repeal net neutrality threatens the level playing field that allows them to compete online".

Fox Business and One American News Network, a decidedly pro-Trump outlet known for pushing conspiracy theories, aired full reports of the net neutrality vote.
