CCIA Applauds Legislative Initiative on Open Internet Access

Washington – The Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA) welcomes the introduction of the Open Internet Preservation Act of 2014 in both the Senate and the House.  The legislation would reinstate the FCC’s Open Internet rules, which were struck down in January by the D.C. Circuit. They would remain in effect until the FCC takes new, final action on the subject.

The following can be attributed to CCIA Vice President Cathy Sloan:

“We are heartened by the strong Congressional expression of support for mandatory open Internet access embodied in the bicameral Open Internet Preservation Act of 2014 by a group of legislators with unmatched depth of expertise in Internet and telecommunications policy.

“As the FCC works diligently to craft new safeguards against content blocking and commercial discrimination that could jeopardize anyone’s open Internet access in the wake of the Verizon court decision, consumers and online businesses will be pleased to know that so many leaders in Congress have their back.”
