Internet Association calls for net neutrality legislation

In a letter addressed to the US Senate, the Internet Association – representing companies such as Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Twitter – has expressed support for the Senate Congressional Review Act resolution, put forward by some members of the Senate in an attempt to invalidate the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) decision to reverse net neutrality rules. The association also notes that, while the resolution would ‘help alleviate immediate concerns’, a more long-term solution is needed. It calls for Congress to pass ‘legislation that memorializes all of the protections from the 2015 Order’, and to ‘establish permanent net neutrality rules for consumers, startups, established internet businesses, and internet service providers’.
