This data about the US Senate members having passed a bill on the 16th of May 2018, which rolls back the 2017 FCC repeal of “net neutrality” rules, gives democrats a tool to use against US house republicans who are running for reelection in the upcoming November 2018 elections.
This US Senate bill is expected to be “dead on arrival” (DOA) in the US House of Representatives but some republicans who are up for reelection may want to reconsider this position as “Net Neutrality” is very popular with both their democratic and republican voters.
Here is the rest of the story…
On May 16, 2018, David McCabe of AXIOS penned the following report, “Senate approves resolution restoring net neutrality rules”
“The Senate on Wednesday approved a resolution that rolls back the Federal Communications Commission’s 2017 repeal of net neutrality rules that required internet providers treat all content in the same way.”
“The big picture: The resolution doesn’t have much of a chance in the House — but Democrats are hoping that it puts the issue front and center with voters.”
