Stop Marsha Blackburn's Anti-Net Neutrality Bill
This article was published in March 2015
This is what it looks like when members of Congress try to kill Net Neutrality. Rep. Marsha Blackburn has already lined up 31 co-sponsors for her new bill, which would destroy Net Neutrality and undo everything the FCC has done to protect the open Internet.
It's easy to see why these particular co-sponsors signed on: They've received tons of campaign contributions from companies like Comcast and Verizon and from the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, an industry lobbying group.
This bill goes against everything millions of people like you have fought for. We must stop this bill in its tracks and expose it for what it is: a betrayal of the open Internet.
We knew it would come to this in Congress. In fact, these folks have scheduled five (FIVE!) hearings to debate everything from the process the FCC undertook to the agency’s budget for implementing the rules.
Our win at the FCC was historic. Now we must defend it from attacks like this one.
