Congresswoman Matsui Statement on Court Decision to Uphold Open Internet Order
Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) released the following statement on a decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, which upheld the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet Order:
“Every American deserves access to opportunity online,” said Congresswoman Matsui.
“I am a long supporter of net neutrality and rules to prevent Internet fast and slow lanes from widening the digital divide in our country. This morning’s decision from the D.C. Circuit is a victory for consumers and innovation, and will ensure the free and open Internet is available to all Americans for generations to come.”
Congresswoman Matsui authored H.R. 196, the Online Competition and Consumer Choice Act, to ban so-called “paid prioritization” agreements between a broadband provider and a content provider, ensure start-ups and entrepreneurs have access to the marketplace, and guarantee consumers can access all content equally.
