Congress Shares Different Views In Terms Of Net Neutrality Issues

Net Neutrality Issues

The CRA vote had already passed obstacles before it could be utilized to defy any federal agency decision. It will now proceed to the House of the Representatives and if fortunate enough, meet US President Donald Trump.

Even if the vote is not yet on the House floor, representatives are already debating about how net neutrality issues should be handled. Representatives Tim Ryan (D-Niles) and Marcy Kaptur, (D-Toledo) have endorsed an appeal that would push the House to establish a measure restoring the Title II order. However, there are others that oppose the idea such as Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Upper Arlington) who preferred that Congress should pass its own bill to focus on the issue.

According to him, he is bothered that unless Congress does something, each new government will just bounce back and forth between new and disagreeing Internet rules. This, in turn, will leave consumers with little assurance.

The measure that he co-sponsored will protect consumers from ISPs blocking and throttling. However, paid prioritization will be allowed to companies to provide faster content access giving options to consumers if they are willing to pay.

Likewise, Sen. Rob Portman agrees on the concept that the law should be absolutely transitioned. He points out that net neutrality issues should not be handled through the regulatory process and the Congress must acknowledge the issue.

Opposedly, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) argues that the House should follow the Senate’s lead. He is one of the Senators who pushed for the CRA vote. Sen. Brown said, “Every House member in Ohio, I assume, will hear from thousands, if not tens of thousands of their voters, their constituents, saying ‘Stand with us.”

The Decenternet network does stand with net neutrality. It enables free speech and protects it. It treats all contents equally without any preferential to other sites.
