House passes net neutrality bill with no hope of becoming law

FCC Chairman Pai Says 'Save the Internet' Is a 'Solution In Search of a Problem'

"The Internet is free and open, while faster broadband is being deployed across America".

If the bill passed the Senate, the White House signaled this week President Donald Trump would likely veto it.

After the FCC repealed net neutrality laws back in 2017, The Daily Caller released a video on YouTube, where Ajit Pai argued that removing the laws would "restore internet freedom" and wouldn't prevent users from continuing to practice their daily activities online.

The net neutrality rules were first approved by the FCC in 2015, during the Obama administration, and were meant to keep the internet open and fair. A simple majority is required to pass (or shoot down) a bill in both the House and Senate. Companies like Netflix have advocated for net neutrality, finding themselves on the opposite side of large service providers like Comcast and AT&T. Adopted in 2015 during the Obama administration, these net neutrality protections had the backing of tech giants and startups as well as consumer advocacy groups, which together argued that strong federal open internet protections were necessary to preserve competition and allow consumers unfettered access to movies, music and other content of their choice. They were highly partisan in Washington and came after a decade of telecom-industry resistance.

Even if it passes the Senate, it sounds like Trump will oppose the bill. During the FCC's repeal effort, millions of Americans wrote the agency in staunch support of the government's rules, spurred on by Web activists and the likes of HBO's John Oliver. "The overwhelming show of support for the Save the Internet Act proves how important and popular Net Neutrality has become". As the legislation now moves to the Senate for final approval, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed that it is "dead on arrival in the Senate", a stance that aligns with that of the Trump administration.

Representative Mike Doyle, a Democrat, said Wednesday that after repealing net neutrality protections the FCC had replaced them with "nothing, nada, zip, crickets".
