Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) today condemned the Federal Communications Commission’s decision to repeal net neutrality rules and announced her intention to co-sponsor new legislation to overturn the FCC’s decision.

“Net neutrality is a cornerstone of a free and open internet. The FCC’s partisan decision to end this basic principle is yet another example of how Republicans are padding the pockets of big corporations at the expense of consumers and small businesses,” Congresswoman McCollum said.

Congresswoman McCollum also announced her intention to join Congressman Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) and other House Democrats on legislation to use the Congressional Review Act to overturn the FCC’s decision and restore net neutrality.

“Congress has the power to overturn the FCC’s terrible decision, and we should use it,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “I am proud to join House Democrats in support of commonsense legislation to nullify this decision, preserve net neutrality, and save the internet.”
