Fighting for Florida

My Statement On The FCC’s Net Neutrality Plan

Once again the FCC is trying to wedge an expansive government into more corners of the free market, this time through unnecessary and heavy-handed regulations on the Internet. What FCC Chairman Wheeler is proposing threatens to restrict Internet growth, increase costs on users, and inevitably stifle the economic opportunity that the Internet currently provides.

This policy also ignores the significant litigation vulnerabilities that could arise from reclassification, which creates greater uncertainty and jeopardizes critical investments in broadband. Instead of the FCC forcing this significant policy change on the American people, Congress should work to update outdated laws from a bygone era in order to provide clarity on the FCC’s role in the modern communications landscape.
