GOP would forbid FCC from using funds to enforce net neutrality
The GOP-controlled House is trying to push through a bill barring the Federal Communications Commission from using any of its funding to enforce rather weak network neutrality rules. Juliana Gruenwald reports this in the National Journal June 15, link here.
It’s not too likely the measure would get past the Senate. But if it did, it could be a big problem for companies that are “subsidized” by neutrality. We need not mention any names.
