Napolitano’s Statement on Net Neutrality

Press Release

(WASHINGTON, DC)  Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-El Monte) released the following statement, reiterating her strong support for Net Neutrality in advance of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) scheduled vote on December 14:

“San Gabriel Valley consumers, not a select group of corporations, should have the freedom to choose what websites and apps they wish to see online. This is why I have always been a strong supporter of Net Neutrality and will continue to fight to ensure equal and unfettered access to the internet. Expansion of free-flowing information online under Net Neutrality has allowed news, sports, and social networking pages to flourish, and the growth in wireless devices over the last decade means this information is at our fingertips like never before. Removing these critical protections, as President Trump’s FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has signaled he plans to do, would threaten consumers’ open access to the internet and restrict our free speech. Over 12 million Americans wrote to the FCC demanding the current Net Neutrality rules remain in place. If you have not yet shared your views on Net Neutrality and wish to do so, call the FCC at 202-418-1000. I strongly urge Chairman Pai and the rest of the FCC Board of Commissioners to listen to the people and uphold Net Neutrality.”
