Net Neutrality Bill Not Expected To Pass in the Senate

Legislation aimed at restoring net neutrality protections easily passed in the Democrat-controlled House, but it will more than likely fail in the Republican-controlled Senate.

It's called the Save the Internet Act, and if put into law it would ban internet providers from interfering with internet speeds, intentionally blocking certain content and selectively choosing what content is subject to data limits.

Democrats have been pushing for a full reinstatement of  Obama-era free and open internet rules  since they were in repealed in 2017.

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned the bill would be "dead on arrival in the Senate,"  according to Reuters .

The White House said Monday it "strongly opposes" the legislation and that if it did make it to President Trump's desk, his advisers would recommend a veto.
