  • CPC: Congress Should Immediately Nullify Attack on the Open Internet

    Today, Congressional Progressive Caucus Co-Chairs Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-AZ) and Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) reacted to the Federal Communications Commission's reversal of the 2015 Open Internet Order, which enshrined the policy of "net neutrality" into law and prevented large corporate internet service providers from throttling internet speeds, favoring or blocking certain types of online content, or engaging in other types of anti-competitive behavior. On December 12th, 28 Members of the CPC sent a letter to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to strongly urge the Commission to reconsider repealing these critical protections. The CPC was one of the first voices to call for Title II reclassification and strong enforceable net neutrality protections in 2014.
