Today is a key date for Congress to nullify the Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of net neutrality protections. The Congressional Review Act affords Congress the ability to overturn federal regulations, such as the FCC’s decision to end net neutrality.
The process begins with the Senate where the vote is expected to be a tie. If so, Vice President Mike Pence is expected to cast a tie-breaking vote in favor of maintaining the FCC’s decision so in order to avoid that scenario, the Senate needs one Republican member to vote in favor of the repeal.
There’s a terrific tool at https://www.battleforthenet.com with ready-made tweets for each of your representatives along with indicating which are supporting the restoration of net neutrality and those that are not yet taking a stance.
All you have to do is select the “TWEET” button to send a notice thanking them for their support or encouraging them to make the right decision and support net neutrality. Selecting the calls button will provide a sample script and connect you with the representative’s office.
It couldn’t be easier.
And be sure to select the “View All” link in order to reach out to senators from other states.
