Let’s reverse the FCC’s vote repealing net neutrality

Editor:

Our governor has done an amazing thing in standing up for net neutrality. Polls show that 80 to 85 percent of Americans prefer net neutrality, which they find essential to modern democracy, business, education, communication and entertainment. And yet, the FCC ignored our wishes and repealed net neutrality at the federal level Dec. 14.

Governor Steve Bullock stepped up by issuing an executive order because “access to reliable and high-quality internet promotes economic growth, job creation, and the free flow of information.” New York and Oklahoma immediately followed his lead while other states and Congress are considering similar options.

I have written Senator Steve Daines and Congressman Greg Gianforte asking them to stand with Senator Jon Tester on the upcoming Congressional Review Act ‘resolution of disapproval’ to reverse the FCC’s vote repealing net neutrality. Wouldn’t it be something if Montana’s leaders set an example of unity for the common good?
