Rep Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and 19 other Republicans are backing legislation to block the Federal Communications Commission’s new rules on network neutrality.

Rep Blackburn's two-page bill would make sure that the FCC's regulations approved on Feb 26 would have "no force of effect." It would also restrict the FCC from approving any new regulations that are substantially similar, unless Congress first authorized it. The bill's 19 co-sponsors include most of the Republicans on the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. "My legislation will put the brakes on this FCC overreach and protect our innovators from these job-killing regulations," Rep Blackburn said.
