Eshoo Statement on FCC Net Neutrality Vote

May 18th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement today after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to begin the process to eliminate net neutrality protections.

“Today, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai began the wrecking process to overturn net neutrality, demonstrating that he is on the wrong side of history, consumers and the public interest. The approval of the NPRM at the FCC begins the process to remove rules that advance competition, innovation, small businesses and entrepreneurs. This reversal will benefit the interests of the largest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and is a significant loss for consumers.

“Three years ago, The American people spoke loudly and clearly in support of rules to protect free speech and online commerce from the powerful grip of corporate gatekeepers. As the public comment process begins, the American people again have the opportunity to make their voices heard.”

The FCC’s public comment process is now open. The public can comment through the FCC’s website here: https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/proceedings?q=name:((17-108))
