Dem net neutrality bill clears first hurdle in House

March 27, 2019

A bill to reinstate the Obama administration's net neutrality rules passed its first legislative hurdle on Tuesday as a House panel voted to advance the measure. Democrats pushed the Save the Internet Act through a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee in the face of Republican opposition. Lawmakers approved the bill in an 18-11 party-line vote after an at-times contentious markup.
