USTelecom Statement on Senate Passage of the Restoring Internet Freedom CRA

05.16.2018

Background: Today, the Senate voted to pass a resolution under the Congressional Review Act to roll back the Federal Communication Commission’s Order to Restore Internet Freedom.

The following statement can be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, President & CEO, USTelecom:

“This vote throws into reverse our shared goal of maintaining an open, thriving internet. Consumers want permanent, comprehensive online protections, not half measures or election year posturing from our representatives in Congress.  While we are disappointed by this vote, broadband providers remain committed to safeguarding the digital lives of consumers and advancing bipartisan legislation that codifies net neutrality principles across the online world.”
