Quigley Cosponsors Congressional Resolution to Roll Back FCC’s Attack on Net Neutrality
WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Representatives Mike Quigley (IL-05) cosponsored the Congressional Resolution to roll back the FCC’s efforts to repeal Obama-era net neutrality measures.
"In our 21st-century world, equal access to all online content is the cornerstone of freely moving communication and commerce. While the Obama-era protections of net neutrality weren’t perfect—and a legislative solution to ensure a free and open internet is necessary—the Trump Administration’s FCC and Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to eliminate these vital safeguards would cause irreparable harm to consumers, stifle innovation, and curtail free expression. Today, I signed on as a cosponsor of the bicameral effort to rollback Chairman Pai’s decimation of net neutrality protections. We need to ensure net neutrality is on stable and secure footing under the law, but until that point, Congress must act to defend the open internet we’ve come to rely on."
