Schumer wants to use CRA to undo net neutrality repeal

Posted by Thomas Gideon on 18 December 2017

Jon Brodkin at Ars Technica as ever explains clearly how using the CRA to undo the FCC vote could work as well as the political likelihood of such an action succeeding. Part of me likes open internet supporters in Congress using the same act to preserve existing neutrality rules that was also used to undo consumer privacy protections earlier in the year. Another part of me wishes legislators would get on with what I think is really needful: a new piece of legislation to establish clear regulatory authority and constraints that is far better in step with the reality of the Internet than decades old telecom law.

Congress could block net neutrality repeal, but Democrats face tough odds.
