Senate votes for net neutrality; House is unlikely to go along
The Senate approved a measure pushed by Democrats on Wednesday that would quash the Federal Communications Commission’s plan to overturn so-called net neutrality rules.
Democrats were able to prevail 52-47 in the Senate with all of their party on board, plus three Republicans.
The measure is unlikely to pass in the House of Representatives. Even if it did, it would have to be approved by President Trump.
Net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers should give consumers access to content on an equal basis, not favoring some sources or blocking others.
