Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC — On Tuesday, Congressman Gene Green (TX-29), a senior Member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, issued the following statement in response to the D.C. Circuit’s ruling on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Open Internet Rule.

“The court’s ruling today highlights what I have been saying for years — that Congress must act and end the ambiguity in our nation’s telecommunications laws. While I expect this ruling to be appealed to the Supreme Court, Congress needs to take this opportunity and work on bipartisan legislation that will protect American consumers and spur competition, innovation, and broadband investment in the years to come.”
