US Court Ruling Against FCC Raises Stakes for “Broadband Reclassification” Threat

04.06.10 07:35 AM

In response to today’s US court ruling against FCC on “net neutrality,” Americans for Prosperity Vice President Phil Kerpen released the following statement:
“Today’s decision dealt a blow to advocates for imposing a heavy Washington regulatory hand on the Internet. The FCC has no legal basis for imposing its dystopian regulatory vision under the net neutrality banner.

“Unfortunately, the Obama administration and its FCC cohorts have been relentless in pursuing their agenda without respect to the democratic process or proper legal processes. The FCC broadband plan makes clear where they want to go to circumvent this court decision: reclassification of the Internet into an old-fashioned regulated utility.

“Such an escalation in the Left’s ongoing efforts to control our communications system must be stopped.”
