net neutrality

The U.S. Senate has stepped into the net neutrality debate.

The Senate last week took a stand against the FCC and in favor of net neutrality last week. The Republican-controlled Senate approved a resolution to nullify the commission’s vote to end the rule that required Internet service providers to treat traffic equally.

The Senate voted 52-47 in favor of nullification. Three Republicans—Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, Sen. Joseph Kennedy of Louisiana and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska—joined Senate Democrats on the resolution. It will face much tougher sledding in the House, where it is not expected to pass, and President Donald Trump is unlikely to go along with it.

But the Senate’s vote is a sign of the strong opposition to the FCC’s decision. According to Business Insider:

Support for the open-internet rules has only grown over time, both among the public and in the Beltway. And the more people know about the rules and what purpose they serve, the more they like and back them, no matter which side of the political aisle they’re on.
