House passes bill to restore ‘net neutrality’ rules

The Internet Only Needs Saving From Terrible Legislation

Critics of net neutrality counter that the rules could stifle investment and innovation, and claim the internet is not designed for utility-style regulation from the 1930s. The bill would essentially repeal the repeal of the rules that the Pai FCC approved in the first year of the Trump administration.

If the bill "were presented to the President", the White House statement said, "his advisors would recommend that he veto it".

The "Save the Internet Act of 2019" (H.R. 1644) seeks to "restore the open internet order of the Federal Communications Commission". "This bill should not and will not become law". Last year, Democrats were able to get around Senate leadership to force a vote on the matter, and it succeeded by a vote of 52-47 after three Republicans joined with the minority: Susan Collins, Maine, Lisa Murkowski, Alaska, and John Kennedy, La. Oral arguments in the case, Mozilla versus the FCC, were heard in February. California and some other states have adopted their own net neutrality rules but they are on hold pending the outcome of the challenge to Pai's order.

WH hits House Dems' net neutrality legislation with veto threat.

In the absence of an explicit ban on these actions, providers are required to publicly disclose any instance of blocking, throttling or paid prioritization.

The concern among net neutrality advocates is that the repeal risks giving internet providers too much control over how online content is delivered.

Wynn Resorts pulls plug on potential Crown Resorts takeover
And in March previous year , Crown's billionaire director Packer resigned from the company's board, citing mental health issues. Wynn was proposing to buy the company half in cash, half in shares, and the current proposal had not gone to the Crown board.


Governor Jared Polis, a Democrat, is expected to sign the measure. That means that if the Democrats get their way, rules prohibiting blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization of internet access would be codified into law, making it more hard for changing FCC leadership to flip-flop the rules. "A free and open internet is a critical part of enabling free speech and allowing our digital economy to thrive".

Representative Mike Doyle, a Democrat, noted polls suggest most Americans back net neutrality. The Trump administration said the bill would "return to the heavy-handed regulatory approach of the previous administration".
