House Votes to Overturn FCC Internet Rules

Friday Feb 18th 2011 by Staff

If the bill becomes law, it would block funding for Net Neutrality.

Reuters: The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Thursday to overturn the Federal Communication Commission's "Net Neutrality" rules. "We think the FCC overstepped their boundaries," said Republican Representative Steve Scalise, whose party spearheaded efforts to block the rule. "This is something that should be done and solved in the halls of Congress."

Before it could become law, the measure would also need to pass the Senate and be signed by the President. The Senate has not scheduled a vote on the issue.
