PROTECT OUR RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH!
To amend the Communications Act of 1934 to limit the authority of the Federal Communications Commission over providers of broadband Internet access service.
1.) Supporters of this bill believe that a classifying the Internet as a public utility welcomes bureaucratic federal meddling and a loss of investors.
2.) Under the new rules, as a telecommunications service, the FCC has much more control over the Internet, subjecting it to the same non-discrimination, common carrier regulations as other utilities.
3.) With an "information service" classification, the FCC would have less regulatory power.
4.) In defense of his bill, Rep. Latta cites experts from the Progressive Policy Institute, that claim reclassifying the the web to a telecommunications service could be "disastrous for the Internet and our economy. Reclassification could add another $15 billion in user fees and taxes for consumers."

" 'Net neutrality' will lead to fewer choices, fewer opportunities & higher prices for consumers"
