Pallone Statement on FCC Vote to Adopt Net Neutrality Protections
WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06), Ranking Member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, issued the following statement following the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) vote to adopt network neutrality protections:
“Today, we witnessed an historic day at the FCC. The Commission responded to the four million Americans who demanded strong network neutrality rules by adopting the most powerful Internet protections consumers have ever had. This tremendous success story shows that Washington can work. That is why I remain open to truly bipartisan efforts to enshrine the FCC’s work into law.
“But first, it is time for the FCC to show its work. So I want to thank Chairman Wheeler for his commitment to me that he will to do everything in his power to release this order as soon as possible. I ask his fellow Commissioners to follow the Chairman’s lead and make this order public. The American people have waited long enough.”
