All eyes turn to FCC in net neutrality debate
Now that Rep. Henry Waxman’s net neutrality bill died before even getting out of committee, congressional Democrats are looking to the FCC to finally deal with The Issue That Never Really Gets Dealt With. The Washington Post reports:
Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass) joined Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) on Wednesday, urging the Federal Communications Commission to reassert its authority over broadband services after a failed U.S. House attempt to create a new neutrality bill. Other lawmakers, including Joe Barton (R-Tex) have been fiercely critical of such a move.
