*Without these rules, big Internet providers like AT&T and
Comcast could force website operators to pay more to avoid content getting
slowed or blocked and they could obstruct a competitor's services to favor their
own. The FCC’s move threatens to make our web access more expensive by forcing
web businesses to pay more for an “internet fast lane.”
*The Congressional Review Act (CRA) offers a way to undue the
FCC’s vote if Congress can pass a "resolution of disapproval” with a simple majority in
both houses, and the signature of the president. The resolution is just one vote shy in the Senate (both Illinois senators are co-sponsors), but the House will be a tougher battle.
*Saving net neutrality will be a long, uphill battle on many fronts. But your action today is important, because it’s key that ALL representatives be forced to make their position known on this issue. And it’s important that we show the overwhelming support for net neutrality.
Please urge Illinois' Congressional delegation to support the CRA "resolution of disapproval."
