Sanders Welcomes FCC Rule on Net Neutrality
WASHINGTON - Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today after the Federal Communications Commission approved new rules to uphold net neutrality:
“The FCC has ensured that the Internet remains a place for the open exchange of ideas and information free of discrimination and corporate control. This is a victory for consumers and entrepreneurs.
“Millions of Americans, including tens of thousands through my website, told the FCC loudly and clearly that Internet service providers should be a neutral gateway to everything on the Internet. Today’s vote shows that ordinary Americans can make a difference when they stand up to powerful corporate interests and Washington lobbyists.”
United States Senator for Vermont
