McMorris Rodgers Votes to Prevent the FCC from Regulating the Internet

Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), a member of the Congressional Internet Caucus, released the following statement after the House passed the No Rate Regulation of Broadband Internet Access Act (H.R. 2666), which was introduced by Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL).

“The internet is a cornerstone of our 21st Century economy,” said McMorris Rodgers. “Any regulation of it should come from and be decided on by the American people through their elected representatives — not by unaccountable, unelected bureaucrats. Today the House voted to ensure that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) keeps its promise to not regulate internet rates and to provide more certainty to the millions of people who rely on internet for daily life.”
