Chairman Blackburn Open to Antitrust Enforcement as a Net Neutrality Fix

Coverage Type: 

House Communications and Technology Chairman Marsha Blackbur (R-TN) is open to using federal antitrust laws to fix the long-running debate over net neutrality. “It’s helpful to consider the complete spectrum of law shielding American consumers from anticompetitive behavior,” she said. “It’s clear that internet service providers are not the only potential roadblock standing between a consumer and his or her content of choice,” she said . “The [House] Commerce Committee will continue to exercise its oversight and jurisdiction on this matter, and I hope my Democratic colleagues will come to the negotiating table.”
