Kerry: Senate Vote A Victory for Open, Free Internet


Location: Washington, DC

Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.), Chairman of the Commerce Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, and the Internet, made the following statement in reaction to the Senate's 52 to 46 vote today to protect a free and open Internet.

"This is a victory for innovation, consumers, and common sense. Today, the Senate refused to hand over the Internet to a small group of corporate interests, and we need to keep up the fight because we know this isn't the last we've heard of the assault on net neutrality," said Sen. Kerry.

Yesterday, Senator Kerry spoke on the Floor of the Senate to urge his colleagues to vote against the Congressional Review Act, which would have reversed critical open internet protections.
