Wave of lawsuits filed to block net-neutrality repeal

Wave of lawsuits filed to block net-neutrality repeal

Susan Collins, a Republican senator from ME, also supports the bill, setting the stage for a 50-50 tie vote that would have to be broken by Vice President Mike Pence.

Facebook notified police of the illegal clip. "The FCC or a court may accept this order or require us and others to refile at a later date".

But wait, there's more.

. He joined New York AG Eric Schneiderman and 20 other state attorneys general in filing the petition to start the lawsuit, calling the FCC's rollback of the rules "arbitrary" and "capricious".

The repeal of net neutrality would have dire consequences for consumers and businesses in Vermont and across the country that rely on a free and open internet - allowing internet service providers to block certain content, charge consumers more to access certain sites, and throttle or slow the quality of content from content providers that don't pay more. It would only need one more senator to pass. Flake also proposed a CRA of his own past year that killed another FCC policy-the Broadband Consumer Privacy Rules, which prohibited ISPs from collecting information about users without explicit permission. In addition, Trump could veto it.

In a statement, Senate Democrats said the bill has support of all 49 Democratic senators.

FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, one of the two FCC commissioners who voted against the rule change, told NPR's "The Takeaway" in December that half of USA households have only one choice for a broadband provider.

House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden, a Republican, said in an interview on Tuesday he planned to hold a hearing on paid prioritization. He publicly supported the current FCC's decision to undo net neutrality protections.

He said he does not believe a vote to overturn the FCC decision would get a majority in the U.S. House.

The decision was announced Tuesday shortly after Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Penn.) said 82 fellow representatives have signed onto a Congressional Review Act bill that mirrors a similar bill in the Senate to try and overturn the FCC's decision. "Where do you want to sit on the airplane?" Critics say what Pai, the Republicans and ISPs want is no regulation at all.
