Congress can still save net neutrality.
The FCC just officially gutted the open internet. Now your cable company can scam you for more money, censor websites, and slow down online content. But Congress can still stop this. We already won in the Senate. Contact your House reps now!
Internet providers like Comcast will legally be allowed to censor websites, block apps and services, and charge us extra fees to access online content. The Internet as we know it won’t suddenly end. But with each second that passes until net neutrality is restored, it will be slowly dying.
Our elected officials in Congress can overrule the FCC and save net neutrality using the Congressional Review Act (CRA). But they’ll only do it if we make them. The CRA resolution passed the Senate 52-47 in a historic upset. But now we’re fighting an uphill battle to get the House of Representatives to do the same. It’s not going to be easy, but if the whole Internet comes together to fight, we can win. Here’s how:
In the House, we’ll need 218 lawmakers to sign on to a “discharge petition” in order to force a vote past leadership to the floor. That means we’ll need to convince all the Democrats and about 25 Republicans to support the CRA. The clock is ticking — if the CRA resolution doesn’t get a vote this year, it dies when the new Congress comes into session. We've done it before.
Flood them with calls and emails
When millions of people call and email their representatives, Congress listens.
