Nelson calls Pai’s proposal to roll back net neutrality rules ‘a dereliction of duty’

April 26, 2017

Senate Commerce Committee Ranking Member Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) issued the following statement on FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s net neutrality proposal:

“Gutting these rules robs Americans of protections that preserve their access to the open and free internet,” said Nelson.  “Depriving the FCC of its ongoing, forward-looking oversight of the broadband industry amounts to a dereliction of duty at a time when guaranteeing an open internet is more critical than ever.  Chairman Pai should back off from rolling back these essential net neutrality rules.”
