After Senate victory, House announces plans to force its own vote on net neutrality

5 days ago   |   By TechCrunch

Hot on the heels of a surprising 52-47 Senate disapproval of the FCC's new, weaker net neutrality rules, the House of Representatives will soon attempt to force a similar vote under the Congressional Review Act. Representative Mike Doyle announced in a statement and at a press conference following the Senate vote that he will begin the process first thing tomorrow morning.
“I have introduced a companion CRA in the house,” Rep. Doyle said, “but I'm also going to begin a discharge petition which we will have open for signature tomorrow morning. And I urge every member who's uproots a free...

5 days ago   |   By SlashGear

If you were a bit cynical about the US Senate's vote to save net neutrality today, we can't really blame you. With senators and representatives all too willing to vote along party lines, the odds are certainly stacked against this effort by Democrats in Congress to block the FCC's “Restoring Internet Freedom Order.” It appears, however, that your cynicism was...

The U.S. Senate voted 52-47 in favor of restoring Net Neutrality

5 days ago   |   By Android Central

Even if the vote passes the Senate, there's still a long battle ahead.
Updated 5/16/18 - The Senate's final vote is in, with the official number being 52 - 47 in favor of restoring Net Neutrality! While this is an exciting and unexpected development, the battle to completely reverse FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's actions is far from over. The CRA will now go to the House of Representatives where Republicans currently hold the majority at 236 to 193. If it by some miracle passes through the House, it then needs to be approved by President Trump who will more than likely veto it. Net Neutrality...

The Senate just voted to uphold net neutrality rules - here's what happens next

The Senate just voted to uphold net neutrality rules - here's what happens next

5 days ago   |   By TheBoyGeniusReport

With the support of three Republican senators and all the Democrats, the Senate just voted in favor of a bill that would reverse last year's contentious decision by the Federal Communications Commission to undo the 2015 net neutrality rules. Obviously, this is a momentous vote and shows that the majority of Senate lawmakers aren't in favor of the decision FCC chairman Ajit Pai ramrodded through last year.
But before you go screaming to the hills about how the internet has been saved or it's a "win" for everyday citizens, it's time for a small reality check. The Senate passing this bill...

Senate votes to reinstate net neutrality - but it has a long way to go

5 days ago   |   By The Verge

The Senate has voted to save net neutrality, but don't get your hopes up: there's still a long, likely impossible journey ahead if the policy is to be saved in the immediate future.
In a 52-47 vote today, senators voted to overturn the Federal Communication Commission's Restoring Internet Freedom Order, which took net neutrality rules off the books. They were able to do so using the Congressional Review Act, or CRA , which allows Congress to reverse recent decisions by government agencies. Republican control of Congress means that such a measure wouldn't normally even make it up for a...

The Senate today disapproved the FCC's recent order replacing 2015's net neutrality rules, a pleasant surprise for internet advocates and consumers throughout the country.

Senate Votes In Favor of Saving Net Neutrality

5 days ago   |   By Phone Scoop

Democrats in the Senate forced a vote on net neutrality today and walked away victorious. Members of the Senate voted 52-47 to retain the net neutrality regulations put in place by the Obama administration that were later nixed by the FCC. The margin of victory was large than expected, with three Republicans, two independents, and 47 Democrats all voting in favor of keeping the rules. Though the bill has passed the Senate, it still has to get through the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and, if it succeeds there, President Trump. Obama's FCC established firm rules governing...
