Free Press Commends Senator Franken for Standing for Real Net Neutrality

WASHINGTON - December 10 - 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:

ā€œSen. 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.ā€
