Democrats to Unveil Bill to Reinstate Net Neutrality Rules

Democrats plan to introduce legislation that would essentially reinstate net neutrality laws that were repealed in 2017.

It's called the Save the Internet Act.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a letter to lawmakers that House Democrats would  work with  the Senate to get the bill passed.

The text of the measure is expected to be unveiled Wednesday.  In 2017, the Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines to scrap net neutrality rules.

Those Obama-era protections were put in place with the goal of keeping the internet open and fair.

They basically forced internet service providers to treat all web content fairly and equally.  The new, looser internet regulations  went into effect  in June of last year.  Critics have said without net neutrality rules in place, providers can control what consumers see online.  In August,  attorneys general  from 22 states and the District of Columbia asked a federal appeals court to reinstate the net neutrality rules.

And last month, that appeals court heard oral arguments in the challenge and is expected to issue a ruling over the summer.
