Time is Running Out. Tell Congress: Restore Net Neutrality Now!

The window on our best chance to restore net neutrality is closing very soon.

December 8, 2018 | The Congressional Review Act gives Congress the right to overturn the FCC and restore the 2015 Open Internet Order — but they must do it before the end of the year.

Activists like you have already achieved so much in the fight to save the free and open internet. You shocked Big Cable and proved the naysayers wrong when we passed the CRA in the Senate.

But we still have to pass the CRA resolution in the House. We need a huge push on members of Congress to restore net neutrality during the lame duck session. If we can’t get enough representatives to sign on, we will have to start all over again in the new Congress.

Tell the House of Representatives: Time is running out. Restore net neutrality today.

Net neutrality is vital to free speech, small business, and communities that might not otherwise have a voice in the mainstream media. The only ones who benefit from the repeal of net neutrality are Big Cable executives and the lobbyists they employ. There’s NO EXCUSE – every lawmaker, both Republican or Democrat, must support net neutrality.

Polls show 86% of Americans support the free and open internet. And they showed that support by voting out dozens of net neutrality opponents in the midterm elections. The only place where this is a controversial partisan issue is inside the beltway.

As of today, the resolution has the support of 177 representatives in the House. We’re so close, but we still need 41 members to sign.

There’s no excuse for inaction and no more time to waste – we must demand the remaining members of Congress support the resolution to restore net neutrality. Add your name today.

Thanks for taking a stand.
