Pallone & Doyle Criticize Chairman Pai's Moves to Cement Net Neutrality Rollback
Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Mike Doyle (D-PA) released the following statement today in response to the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) agenda for tomorrow's open meeting:
"Chairman Pai is at it again, pushing his anti-consumer agenda -- this time on the eve of an historic election. Americans deserve strong Net Neutrality protections, but this FCC is rushing ahead of November 3rd to further cement its efforts to deprive Americans of these critical protections. At a time when internet connectivity is especially critical for students, parents, first responders, low-income and rural Americans, the FCC should be protecting American families, not undermining them. Time and again, this FCC has put industry interests before those of consumers, and its actions this week are no exception."
