• The U.S. Senate voted 52-47 in favor of restoring Net Neutrality

    7 days ago - By Android Central

    Even if the vote passes the Senate, there's still a long battle ahead.
    Updated 5/16/18 - The Senate's final vote is in, with the official number being 52 - 47 in favor of restoring Net Neutrality! While this is an exciting and unexpected development, the battle to completely reverse FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's actions is far from over. The CRA will now go to the House of Representatives where Republicans currently hold the majority at 236 to 193. If it by some miracle passes through the House, it then needs to be approved by President Trump who will more than likely veto it. Net Neutrality...

    The Senate just voted to uphold net neutrality rules - here's what happens next

    7 days ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    With the support of three Republican senators and all the Democrats, the Senate just voted in favor of a bill that would reverse last year's contentious decision by the Federal Communications Commission to undo the 2015 net neutrality rules. Obviously, this is a momentous vote and shows that the majority of Senate lawmakers aren't in favor of the decision FCC chairman Ajit Pai ramrodded through last year.
    But before you go screaming to the hills about how the internet has been saved or it's a "win" for everyday citizens, it's time for a small reality check. The Senate passing this bill...

    Senate votes to reinstate net neutrality - but it has a long way to go

    7 days ago - By The Verge

    The Senate has voted to save net neutrality, but don't get your hopes up: there's still a long, likely impossible journey ahead if the policy is to be saved in the immediate future.
    In a 52-47 vote today, senators voted to overturn the Federal Communication Commission's Restoring Internet Freedom Order, which took net neutrality rules off the books. They were able to do so using the Congressional Review Act, or CRA , which allows Congress to reverse recent decisions by government agencies. Republican control of Congress means that such a measure wouldn't normally even make it up for a...

Although the disapproval will almost certainly not lead to the new rules being undone, it is a powerful statement of solidarity with a constituency activated against this deeply unpopular order.

  • Senate Votes In Favor of Saving Net Neutrality

    7 days ago - By Phone Scoop

    Democrats in the Senate forced a vote on net neutrality today and walked away victorious. Members of the Senate voted 52-47 to retain the net neutrality regulations put in place by the Obama administration that were later nixed by the FCC. The margin of victory was large than expected, with three Republicans, two independents, and 47 Democrats all voting in favor of keeping the rules. Though the bill has passed the Senate, it still has to get through the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and, if it succeeds there, President Trump. Obama's FCC established firm rules governing...

    The US Senate is voting Wednesday on whether to put the FCC's net neutrality rules back in place.
    The Senate resolution would overturn a vote by the agency in December to scuttle its open-internet regulations.
    The resolution has drawn the support of half of all senators, but it needs a majority to pass.
    Even if it passes, the resolution faces a dubious future, because it needs to be passed by the House of Representatives and signed by President Trump.
