[JURIST] The US Senate [official website] approved a resolution [S J Res 52] on Wednesday that rejects the Federal Communication Commission's "Restoring Internet Freedom" [text] ruling that dismantled net neutrality.
The resolution passed the Senate with a vote [vote record] of 52-47. Three Republican senators voted for the resolution, including Collins of Maine, Kennedy of Louisiana and Murkowski of Alaska. Senator McCain of Arizona did not cast a vote in the resolution.
The bill has now been sent to the House of Representatives. FCC Chairman Pai has stated [statement, TXT] that "[i]t's disappointing that Senate Democrats forced this resolution through by a narrow margin. But ultimately, I'm confident that their effort to reinstate heavy-handed government regulation of the Internet will fail." Restoring Internet Freedom becomes effective [Federal Register, PDF] on June 11, 2018.
