Senate votes to save net neutrality rules

Senate votes to save net neutrality rules | 16 May 2018 | The Senate on Wednesday voted to reinstate the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) net neutrality rules, passing a bill that has little chance of advancing in the House but offers net neutrality supporters and Democrats a political rallying point for the midterm elections. Democrats were able to force Wednesday's vote using an obscure legislative tool known as the Congressional Review Act (CRA). CRA bills allow Congress, with a majority vote in each chamber and the president's signature, to overturn recent agency moves. Three Republicans -- Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and John Kennedy (La.) -- joined the 49 Senate Democrats to pass the bill 52-47.
