WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18), Ranking Member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee, issued the following statement on Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler’s proposal to reinstate net neutrality protections after they were struck down by the D.C. Circuit Court earlier this year:
“Using the FCC’s clear authority, as recognized by the D.C. Circuit Court, today Chairman Wheeler has proposed a series of actions that put consumers back in the driver’s seat when it comes to their online experience. The proposed FCC actions would enhance transparency for consumers so they know if and when their Internet service provider is slowing down or blocking online content, and include a commitment to restore the protections of the no-blocking and non-discrimination rules. Furthermore, the proposal aims to enhance broadband competition by reducing barriers to municipality-built broadband networks.
“I wholeheartedly welcome Chairman Wheeler’s proposed actions to preserve a free and open Internet, and I look forward to seeing these important steps implemented.”
Rep. Eshoo is a co-author of legislation with Rep. Henry A. Waxman (CA-33) to restore Open Internet Rules until the FCC takes new, final action in the Open Internet proceeding. Senator Ed Markey sponsors the Senate companion bill.
