Welch Statement on FCC Chairman's Proposal to Repeal Net Neutrality Rules


Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) issued the following statement in response to the Federal Communications Commission chairman's proposal to repeal net neutrality rules.

"A free and open internet is essential to the free flow of ideas, creativity, participatory democracy, and commerce.

I hope the courts overturn this misguided anti-consumer policy."
