Schumer Statement On House Passage Of Legislation To Reinstate Net Neutrality And Senate GOP’s Refusal to Act

April 10, 2019

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the House passage of legislation to reinstate net neutrality and the Senate GOP’s refusal to act:

“The House’s vote to reinstate net neutrality reflects the will of millions of Americans who made their voices heard that they don’t want their costs of using the Internet to go up unfairly, they do not want their freedom to be constricted, and that if they should decide to start up a business, they deserve to be on an equal playing field with their larger competitors. As the American people experience the consequences of the FCC’s misguided net neutrality decision, they’ll know it’s because Senator McConnell and Senate Republicans refused to stand up to special interests and take action to stop it when they had the chance.”
