Rep. Matsui Statement on FCC Decision to Extend Net Neutrality Public Comment Period

Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA), a member of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, issued the following statement after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) extended the net neutrality public comment period:

“Given the record public interest, I am pleased that the FCC decided to offer Americans additional time to share their voices on the net neutrality proposal.    I urge all Americans who care about the future of the open Internet to share their views with the FCC.  Our country cannot afford so-called Internet fast lanes or special paid prioritization agreements.  We need strong net neutrality protections in place that truly preserve a free and open Internet.”

The FCC has extended the net neutrality public comment period until midnight, Friday, July 18.  The public can register their comments by emailing them to openinternet@fcc.gov or by visiting www.fcc.gov.
