House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is pushing for a floor vote on a bill that would stop the Federal Communications Commission from repealing network neutrality.  “December’s radical FCC vote to dismantle net neutrality has endangered the American entrepreneurship and freedom that are the envy of the world,” Rep Pelosi said. “Congress must act to reverse this destructive FCC ruling that steamrolled over a bipartisan, decades-long consensus and the will of the American people to undermine the fair playing field that is the heart of the internet.”

House Communications Subcommittee Ranking Member Mike Doyle (D-PA), announced this week that his bill to block the repeal has lined up 82 co-sponsors, including Minority Leader Pelosi. Democratic Reps can't force a vote on their bill, but Pelosi’s endorsement is further evidence that Democrats see net neutrality as a winning political issue.
