Resolution to Restore FCC's Net Neutrality
The Federal Communications Commission’s unpopular Dec. 14 decision to destroy Net Neutrality has been challenged with a resolution of disapproval introduced by 30 Senators, the total number of votes needed to discharge a resolution under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) and take it to a vote on the Senate floor. CRA resolutions allow Congress to overturn regulatory actions at federal agencies with a simple majority vote in both chambers. In accordance with the Congressional Review Act, the Senators will formally introduce the resolution once the rule is submitted to both houses of Congress and published in the federal register. Congressman Mike Doyle (D-Penn.) plans to introduce a CRA resolution in the House of Representatives.
