McMorris Rodgers Statement on the FCC

Washington, D.C. – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) proposal to repeal net neutrality.

“I have long said I opposed the heavy-handed approach the previous administration took in reclassifying the Internet under Title II, and I applaud the Commission’s effort to roll back these arbitrary rules,” said Chair McMorris Rodgers.

“The previous FCC upended decades of bipartisan consensus by ramming through a regulatory framework that discourages investment and slows innovation. Now more than ever, I believe it’s time for both sides of the aisle and the Internet community to come together and find a legislative solution that protects consumers without disrupting the free flow of information or stifling innovation.”
