ROSEN STATEMENT ON TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S MOVE TO END NET NEUTRALITY RULES

June 11, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement in response to the end of net neutrality protections that the Trump Administration decided to roll back.

“Republicans in Washington have ignored the will of their constituents by failing to protect these net neutrality rules that protect Americans’ access to a free and open internet,” said Rosen. “Nevada’s small businesses, students, and hardworking families all stand to potentially lose as a result of this harmful decision and could end up having to pay more to connect to the internet at slower speeds. I will continue to fight this reckless move and work to restore net neutrality rules for consumers.”


BACKGROUND: Today’s end to net neutrality comes after the Senate last month passed S.J.Res. 52, a joint resolution rescinding the current Administration’s repeal of Obama-era net neutrality protections and which House Republicans refused to bring to the House floor for a vote. In February 2018, Rosen signed on as an original co-sponsor of Rep. Mike Doyle’s (D-PA) joint resolution, the House counterpart to S.J.Res. 52. She also signed a discharge petition to force a floor vote on this legislation and wrote an op-ed in The Nevada Independent detailing her opposition to the FCC’s misguided decision to repeal net neutrality.
