Net Neutrality Fight Begins with FCC’s Repeal Published in Federal Register
Statement of Michael Copps, former FCC Commissioner & Common Cause Special Advisor.
WASHINGTON - Today, the FCC’s repeal of its 2015 net neutrality rules was published in the Federal Register.
“An open internet is absolutely essential to a functioning democracy, and we will fight to make sure that the people, not the special interests and their compliant FCC, have the final word on its future. Federal Register publication of the FCC’s net neutrality repeal does not mark the end of the fight for an open internet but just the beginning. Common Cause and its allies are fighting all the way to oppose the FCC’s misguided actions and restore the net neutrality rules through all fronts including litigation, state legislation, and the Congressional Review Act.”
