Net Neutrality

In today’s Board of Supervisor meeting I joined my collegues in voting to support Net Neutrality and oppose the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

On February 22, 2018 FCC published rules that repeal existing Net Neutrality rules for internet service providers. Repealing Net Neutrality network providers would be able to create internet “fast lanes” and “slow lanes,” raising prices for consumers and stifling innovation.

Recent polling shows that 83% of all Americans favor Net Neutrality and disapprove of the FCC’s decision to repeal it protections. Net Neutrality is essential for bridging the “digital divide” our communities deserve connectivity for all.
