Stabenow and Peters Introduce Resolution to Reinstate Net Neutrality

United States Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters introduced a resolution to overturn the Federal Communications Commission decision to repeal net neutrality rules.
The resolution, which would fully restore the 2015 Open Internet Order, has the support of 50 members of the Senate. Only one more vote is needed for the Senate to take action.
“Internet access isn’t a luxury for people in Michigan; it’s a necessity,” said Senator Stabenow. “High school students need the internet to do their homework at night, and small-business owners need it to sell their products. Just one more vote will keep the internet open and free.”
Senator Peters said, “We live in an increasingly interconnected world, and access to an open internet is more vital than ever for Michigan small businesses, startups, students and job-seekers.”
