Last Thursday, the FCC voted to gut the Title II Net Neutrality protections, willfully ignoring the public outcry against such. We should not let chairman Ajit Pai have the last word on this, and that’s why we’re calling on Congress to overturn this vote. Urge your lawmakers to reverse the FCC’s Net Neutrality repeal today.
Congress has the power to restore the Net Neutrality rules we fought so hard for. Using the Congressional Review Act (CRA), Congress can pass a “resolution of disapproval” that would nullify the FCC’s repeal of Net Neutrality.
You may remember the CRA from last spring, when privacy opponents used it to roll back the Obama-era FCC’s strong broadband-privacy rules. Now we need to turn the tables and use the CRA to save the internet. Tell Congress: Overturn the FCC’s Net Neutrality-killing vote.
The CRA empowers Congress to review new regulations and pass a joint resolution of disapproval to overrule any recent regulations it doesn’t like. Overturning Pai’s misleadingly named “Restoring Internet Freedom Order” would leave us with the exact same Net Neutrality protections we won in 2015. Think of it as a double negative: If we repeal Pai’s repeal, we could end up right back where we started — with strong Net Neutrality rules.
Contact your members of Congress today: Tell them to use a resolution of disapproval to overturn the FCC’s vote to dismantle Net Neutrality. As we fight for the open internet in the courts and in the streets, we need our allies in Congress to fight side by side for a clean rollback of Pai’s bogus plan. The Net Neutrality fight isn’t over. http://act.freepress.net/sign/internet_fcc_overturn_rod/?
