Rep. Tom Graves Statement on FCC Vote to Repeal Net Neutrality Regulations

Washington, December 14, 2017 - Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to dismantle net neutrality regulations:

“I commend Chairman Pai and the FCC for approving this plan to restore internet freedom. It’s the result of an open and transparent process that provided all relevant documents and information to the public ahead of the vote. The plan will repeal Obama-era net neutrality regulations, which stifled innovation and competition on the internet and did nothing to protect consumers. Returning to a free and open internet will ensure the online marketplace continues to flourish while increasing broadband access for rural and low-income Americans.”
