January 16, 2018 | Half the Senate - forty-nine Democrats and independents, one Republican - plan to co-sponsor Sen. Ed Markey's (D-MA) legislation that would undo the FCC's repeal of net neutrality.

Last month, the Federal Communications Commission voted to dismantle net neutrality regulations, allowing internet providers to speed up – or slow down – access to apps and websites.

Markey’s bill, if made law, would reverse that ruling.

Under the Congressional Review Act (CRA), Congress can nullify recently passed legislation with a simple majority.
