House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement regarding Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai’s announcement on the rolling back of net neutrality regulations.

“I applaud the FCC’s decision to roll back the antiquated regulations that threaten job creation and competition. I support an open Internet, but there is a better way to ensure consumer protections without disrupting the freeflow of information and innovation that has made it a cornerstone of the 21st Century economy. It’s time for Congress and the Internet community to work together to achieve a solution that benefits everyone.”
