Congressman Pappas votes to pass 'Save the Internet Act' to restore Net Neutrality
Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman Chris Pappas, a co-sponsor of H.R. 1644, the "Save the Internet Act of 2019," voted to pass the bill to re-instate the Obama-era FCC policy of Net Neutrality. This bill would eliminate the unjust favoritism of certain corporations and internet service providers, leveling the playing field for consumers and small businesses who depend on the internet for their success.
"A free and open internet is crucial to ensuring every small business has an equal shot at success and no consumer is locked out of the opportunity to access information," said Congressman Pappas. "When corporations dictate the rules of the road, the internet becomes a tool for their own interests rather than for the people. I'm proud to have co-sponsored and passed this bipartisan bill through the House, and I'm hopeful that this legislation will enjoy the same bipartisan Senate support it did last session. New Hampshire consumers and small businesses depend on a level playing field and today we moved a step closer to restoring net neutrality."
