Reichert Statement on FCC Net Neutrality Vote

Dec 14, 2017

Washington, DC - Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA) released the following statement after the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) vote on net neutrality this afternoon.

"While we share the goal of maintaining an open Internet, I am concerned about the FCC’s decision to eliminate the bright-line rules that have prohibited the blocking of legal content, slowing down of services, and the creation of paid fast lanes," said Rep. Reichert. "These net neutrality principles have helped to keep the Internet a source of communication, creativity, learning, and job creation for every American. Congress should work on a bipartisan basis to ensure the Internet remains open, free from interference, and a source of innovation."
