Doyle Announces More Cosponsors of Net Neutrality Legislation

Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Mike Doyle (PA-14) announced today that 110 Members of Congress have asked to cosponsor his legislation to overrule the FCC’s order eliminating Net Neutrality. 
 
“I’m pleased that we’ve been able to pick up nearly 30 additional cosponsors of our bill to save Net Neutrality in just a week,” Congressman Doyle said today. “It says to me that the momentum behind this legislation is building.”

On December 14, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines to reverse the Open Internet Order, which regulated Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in order to ensure net neutrality. Later that day, Congressman Doyle announced that he would introduce legislation in the House to overrule the FCC’s action, and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) announced that he would do the same in the Senate. The Senate bill currently has 50 cosponsors.

Under the Congressional Review Act, members of the House and Senate can offer a joint resolution of disapproval on any regulation recently issued by a federal agency. Such legislation can’t be introduced, however, until the regulation is “received by Congress.” 

As of today, the following Members of the US House of Representatives have agreed to cosponsor Congressman Doyle’s legislation to save Net Neutrality:
