Free Press Commends Senator Franken for Standing for Real Net Neutrality

WASHINGTON - Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) sent a letter to the Federal Communications
Commission on Friday, urging Chairman Julius Genachowski to pass real
Network Neutrality protections when the agency votes on the issue on
Dec. 21.

Free Press Political Adviser Joel Kelsey made the following statement:

“Sen. Franken is a champion for real Net Neutrality, and we applaud
him for standing with the millions of open Internet supporters outside
the Beltway. We hope more members of Congress will join him in trying to
protect free speech online and to ensure that we get strong Net
Neutrality rules that would preserve the open Internet.”
