Rep Doyle Says He Will Propose Using Congressional Review Act to Overturn Net Neutrality Rollback

House Communications Subcommittee Ranking Member Mike Doyle (D-PA) says he will propose using the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the Federal Communications Commission's rollback of net neutrality rules if FCC Chairman Ajit Pai does not stand down. That is the legislative maneuver Republicans used to invalidate a number of Obama-era regs earlier in 2017. “The answer to monopolies has always been regulation and competition, and as much as some of the FCC Commissioners don’t want to acknowledge it, Net Neutrality and the regulation of ISPs under Title II are essential for providing real competition in the Broadband marketplace," said Ranking Member Doyle. Doyle said he and dozens of other legislators would be sending a letter Dec 13 urging the chairman not to repeal the regs, but that if the FCC does do so Dec. 14, as planned, he plans to introduce the CRA-based legislation.
