Tell Congress to Reinstate the Open Internet Order
In December, the FCC voted to roll back the Open Internet Order, giving Internet service providers free rein to engage in unfair data discrimination practices. But it’s not too late: Congress can still save the existing net neutrality rules.
The FCC’s 2015 Open Internet Order was a huge victory for Internet users. Thanks to the millions of us who spoke up for a free and open Internet, we won essential net neutrality protections.
Those protections are about to disappear. Despite overwhelming opposition from the public and the experts, FCC Chair Ajit Pai decided to reverse the Open Internet Order, giving major telecommunications companies an unprecedented ability to shape our Internet experience.
But we can stop it. Under the Congressional Review Act, Congress can reverse a change in a federal regulation by a simple majority vote within 60 working days after that regulation is published in the official record. In other words, Congress can vote to overturn Pai’s rule change and bring back the Open Internet Order.
In the Senate, 52 Senators voted to keep the rules, and we have to make sure that the House of Representatives follows the will of millions of Americans and votes to reinstate net neutrality protections.
Now is the time. Please call your representative and urge them to commit to using the Congressional Review Act to save the Open Internet Order.
