Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Gene Green issued the following statement after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to roll back Obama-era net neutrality protections:

“American consumers need to be assured that the online content of their choosing will not be unfairly slowed down or blocked. That assurance was stripped away in a partisan 3-2 vote by the FCC today. I am very disappointed in the FCC’s actions and hope Congress will act and work on passing legislation that will make these critical net neutrality protections permanent.”
