House Committee Debates Rules For Net Neutrality Debate

April 4, 2011

Reps. Greg Walden, R-Ore., and Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., duked it out one-on-one at a House Rules Committee hearing on net neutrality Monday evening.

The committee was considering Walden's resolution of disapproval, which would overturn the FCC's recent net neutrality rules. The panel voted to send the resolution to the House floor.

The debate between Walden and Eshoo, who opposes the resolution, included not only familiar arguments over the merits of the rules, but also a lot of he-said, she-said disagreement over what witnesses said.

Democrats on the committee again sought to amend the resolution, but Republicans countered that under Congressional rules, a resolution of disapproval cannot be amended.

On Monday the White House threatened to veto the resolution, although if approved by the House, it is not expected to pass the Senate. Read the full story here.
