Rep. Davis joins Amicus Brief to Overturn Repeal of Net Neutrality

Congressman Danny K. Davis joined Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA.), a senior member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, Senator Ed J. Markey (D-Mass.) and 102 other members of Congress in filing an amicus brief with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) recent repeal of net neutrality protections.

In 2015, the FCC established strong, legally sound protections to prevent the largest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from throttling, assessing a toll or blocking content. In 2017, the FCC voted to eviscerate those protections. Since then, consumer advocates, tech companies, small businesses, and 22 state Attorneys General have mobilized to appeal this decision in the D.C. Circuit Court. The Amicus Brief led by Eshoo and Markey supports them in the ongoing court fight.

A copy of the brief can be found here.
