Republicans on Capitol Hill are looking to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with their recently introduced net neutrality legislation, Sen. John Kennedy’s (R-LA) Open Internet Preservation Act, a companion to last year’s bill by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN). After a hard-won battle to roll back the harmful broadband regulations at the Federal Communications Commission last year, some lawmakers seem pleased with the FCC’s reduced role, but are inexplicably doubling down on the substance of the regulations themselves.
