FEATURING TIM KARR – The United States Senate on Wednesday voted 52-47 to overturn the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decision on net neutrality. All 49 Democrats voted for the bill, with three Republicans joining in. The Senate used the Congressional Review Act as a vehicle to defy the FCC.
The FCC, under chairman Ajit Pai moved last December to undermine its Net Neutrality policy in the face of massive and unprecedented public opposition.
Wednesday’s Senate vote was also the result of millions of Americans writing and calling their representatives.
