Net neutrality ruling will hurt small businesses

Court Fight Over Net Neutrality Begins to Take Shape The effort to block the FCC's repeal of net neutrality just hit an important milestone

With the 30 votes, the CRA resolution will receive a full vote in the Senate. In the 539-page declaratory ruling by the FCC published on January 4, the commission indicates that the federal rules pre-empt any local legislation passed into law by state governments.

Sen. Claire McCaskillClaire Conner McCaskillDemocrats turn on Al Franken Trump rips Dems a day ahead of key White House meeting The Hill's 12:30 Report MORE (D-Mo.) announced her support for the bill on Twitter, putting it over the top of a procedural requirement to bypass committee approval.

In another episode of the California vs. Donald Trump saga, Democratic state lawmakers are promoting legislation to preserve equal internet access in defiance of a recent federal ruling.

But for many Americans, Markey's bill might be the best chance they have at a free and open internet.

Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, promoted dueling legislation - now in the form of spot bill SB 822 - stating the Legislature's intent to "effectuate net neutrality in California utilizing the state's regulatory powers".

Net neutrality-the principal that Internet service providers must treat all data on the Internet equally and not block, throttle, or charge extra or access to it-has been vital to growth of the Internet.

A spokesman for the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services said there were no reports of harm to the region. According to the USGS website , people reported feeling the quake 40 miles south in San Jose.

Tom Wheeler's net neutrality rules probably place too many restrictions on the telcos, while the so-called "Restoring Internet Freedom Order" maybe offers to much freedom to billion-dollar businesses, who haven't really earnt the trust being granted through light-touch regulation they now have.

The FCC may have repealed its net neutrality protections, but the battle isn't over yet.

The lobby group for some of the most powerful U.S. tech firms said it would join the legal challenge to the planned rollback of "net neutrality" rules requiring internet service providers to treat all online traffic equally. IA intends to act as an intervenor in judicial action against this order and, along with our member companies, will continue our push to restore strong, enforceable net neutrality protections through a legislative solution.

By forcing a floor vote on the resolution to nullify the repeal, supporters of net neutrality could make Republican legislators go on record about their stance - something that could become a campaign issue in this fall's midterm elections.

The opposition to the FCC repeal is mobilizing in a big way.

The group, known as the Internet Association, clearly stated for the first time that these large tech companies like Microsoft, Google, and Facebook are not only against the repeal, but they will stake their well-being on overturning it.
