Senate OK's bill in bid to retain net neutrality

The Senate has voted to pass a measure to keep net neutrality rules the same.

The Senate has taken action to protect net neutrality rules set to end next month.

Representative Mike Doyle, a Democrat, said he would launch an effort on Thursday to try to force a House vote and needs the backing of at least two dozen Republicans. The three Senate Republicans included Susan Collins, Maine; John Kennedy, La.; and Lisa Murkowski, Alaska. Still, a victory is a victory. However, he also urged Democrats to work with him so that certain net neutrality could be implemented, and promised internet users would not notice a big difference in the service when the repeal comes into effect.

Yesterday, the US Senate passed the Congressional Review Act, a resolution to restore Net Neutrality provisions.

For Democrats, net neutrality is a segment of three aspects, internet access, gun control and marijuana legalization; they are hankering on to lure young voters to absorb in the midterm elections. Markey (D-Mass.) said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer spoke after the vote to begin debate earlier Wednesday, arguing that "at stake is the future of the internet". The Internet was free and open before 2015, when the prior FCC buckled to political pressure from the White House and imposed utility-style regulation on the Internet.

One of the Democratic party-supporting members of the FCC, Jessica Rosenworcel, said about the vote: "Today the United States Senate took a big step to fix the serious mess the FCC made when it rolled back net neutrality late a year ago". "We show the American people who sides with them, and who sides with the powerful special interests and corporate donors who are thriving under this administration".

The regulations are strongly supported by liberals and online companies including Amazon, Netflix, Facebook and Google, and dozens of smaller Web-based companies. The resolution also reinstates private mobile service classification of mobile broadband Internet access service and requires Internet service providers to disclose information about their network management and performance characters. "Strong consumer protections from deceptive practices, including slowing promised internet speeds, can be implemented without the heavy-handedness of net neutrality".

Last week, the FCC said the net neutrality rules would expire on June 11 and that the new regulations approved in December, handing providers broad new power over how consumers can access the internet, would take effect. The bill will now go to the House of Representatives, where its fate is unclear.
