Rep Latta Leads Congressional Effort to Overturn FCC Rule to Control the Internet

Bob Latta (R-OH5) introduced a Congressional Resolution disapproving of the Federal Communications Commission’s recently announced rule to reclassify broadband under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934, essentially reclassifying broadband as a public utility: “It’s incredulous we’re having the debate again about the FCC’s so-called ‘net neutrality’ order when its repeal in 2017 led to lower prices, faster Internet speeds, and increased investment in broadband networks. Once again, the Biden administration is prioritizing heavy-handed government control, made evident in the FCC’s latest push to control the Internet. That’s why I’m introducing a Congressional Resolution Act today to overturn this misguided decision and to keep the agency from imposing stifling regulations that will hinder our ability to expand broadband Internet access and close the digital divide.”
