House Likely To Vote On Anti-Net Neutrality Resolution Next Week

April 1, 2011

The full House looks ready to vote on a resolution that would overturn Federal Communications Commission net neutrality rules.

House Republicans introduced the measure to repeal the FCC's regulations, which are designed to prevent Internet carriers from blocking websites that use too much bandwidth.

The Rules Committee has scheduled an "emergency" hearing for Monday evening on the bill. House aides say a vote is expected Tuesday.

An similar resolution has been introduced in the Senate, but the measure is not expected to gain support in either the Democratic-controlled Senate, or from President Obama, who has publicly expressed support for the FCC's rules.
