The Senate approved a resolution Wednesday to nullify the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) net neutrality rollback, dealing a symbolic blow to the FCC’s new rule that remains on track to take effect next month.
The move overturns a decision by the FCC that unraveled Obama-era rules that prevent internet providers from slowing, blocking or charging extra fees for access. The measure moves to the GOP-controlled House of Representatives, where it is expected to die.
The Senate voted 52-47 on the resolution. Three Republicans joined with Democrats—Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana and Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
