Yarmuth Statement on FCC's Net Neutrality Vote

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the statement below following the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) vote to adopt new open internet rules:

“As a strong supporter of an open internet, I welcome today’s vote at the Federal Communications Commission to ensure that the internet remains a catalyst for innovation, commerce, and creativity. Louisvillians have been outspoken in their desire for strong open internet protections, and it’s important that we preserve the right to a level playing field for all Americans. As a member of the Committee on Energy and Commerce’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, which has jurisdiction over the FCC and net neutrality matters, I look forward to reviewing the new rules with my colleagues as we work to modernize our laws to meet the rapidly changing technology demands of the 21st century.”
