Senate votes to undo FCC's net neutrality repealDon't celebrate just yet -- there's still a major uphill battle to save net neutrality.
The joint resolution is passed. Net Neutrality isn't dead just yet, but it's still on life support. A resolution aimed at stopping the FCC's repeal of Net Neutrality passed the US Senate by two votes Senate Democrats are using a legislative tool called the Congressional Review Act as a last ditch effort to stop the repeal. CRAs can be used to roll back federal regulations and this vote gives net neutrality proponents a solid win, but there are still two major hurdles. One the resolution must gain a simple majority in the House of Representatives. And two, President Trump has to approve and sign it, which is an unlikely event, considering White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, suggested Trump supports the FCC's decision to roll back the regulations. Congress people supporting the resolution admitted saving Net Neutrality was still an uphill battle, but also hoped the vote would give the movement additional momentum. Many urged Americans to call their local representatives and get them on the record as for against net neutrality as added pressure this election year.
