Net Neutrality Vote Coming

March 14, 2011

The full House Energy and Commerce Committee will consider a GOP-led effort to overturn federal regulations that restrict Internet providers from blocking websites that use too much bandwidth.

Committee members will give opening statements Monday with an actual vote on the Resolution of Disapproval scheduled for Tuesday. Members will be able to speak on both the net neutrality resolution and a measure targeting the Environmental Protection Agency.

House Republicans introduced a Resolution of Disapproval that cleared a subcommittee last week and, if approved by the Senate and President Obama, would block the Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality rules enacted in December.

The resolution cannot be amended, but House Democrats registered their disapproval with a string of amendments that were ruled non-germane. The measure is not expected to gain support from either the Democratic-controlled Senate or Obama.
