NARUC Responds to FCC Net Neutrality Ruling
WASHINGTON—The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners has issued the following statement in response to the Federal Communications Commission’s vote today on “Internet Freedom” rules:
State regulators have long supported the concept of net neutrality. Since 2002, the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners has supported policies that promote an open Internet. Although the order does maintain vital transparency requirements, today’s action by the Federal Communications Commission is an unfortunate step. Given this FCC action, it is past time for Congress to step in and bring certainty to this issue.
