Stop the FCC from censoring the net

Kay Bailey Hutchison

I received the following from Demand Progress that there is a bill that will allow the government to censor the internet through the FCC. The bill passed the House and is now in the Senate. It is sponsored by Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX). Here is what Demand Progress had to say:

Net Neutrality is under attack: Big Telecom is ramming a resolution through the Senate to undermine existing Net Neutrality regulations and ban the FCC from enacting protections in the future.

Will you urge your Senators to stand strong? Just fill out the form at right.

As The Hill newspaper notes, "Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) said she will push for a Senate vote on a resolution of disapproval to negate the regulations this fall. A similar vote passed the House earlier this year but stalled in the Senate."

Just fill out the form at right to email your Senators.

To fill out the petition click here. This is a bullshit move by Congress and we need to call them on it. We don't want the net to be censored. Censorship is a violation of the 1st Amemdment and we need to tell Congress we won't stand for it. If you agree with that then sign the petition right away.
