Rep Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) filed legislation Jan 5 to strike down Internet line regulations passed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in December.
She already has a Democrat supporting her effort, with Blue-Dog Democrat Rep Dan Boren (D-OK) joining her on the bill. Blackburn's office said she is also joined by more than 60 members, including the majority of Republicans on the House Commerce Committee. The bill states that regulations impacting the Internet must be left to Congress, striking the FCC's rules.
