Text of letter from U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (December 5th, 2017)

Dear Mr. Danilow:

Thank you for contacting me regarding Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai's proposal to undo the agency's net neutrality rules.

I support the existing rules, and as a result, I oppose Chairman Pai's proposal, which would gut the existing rules and rob Americans of vital protections that preserve our access to a free and open internet.

Despite widespread support for the rules, the FCC chairman has scheduled a vote by the full commission on his proposal for December 14.

Depriving the FCC of its authority over broadband amounts to a dereliction of regulatory duty at a time when guaranteeing an open internet is more critical than ever. American consumers deserve better.

As Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, which has jurisdiction over the FCC, I will continue to monitor these issues closely.

I appreciate you writing to me about these important issues.


Bill Nelson
