House Judicial Committee Attempts to Block Net Neutrality Rules

Recent rules passed by the FCC ensure net neutrality. Having classified the internet as a utility, the FCC thought it had put to bed the issue of net neutrality. This doesn’t seem to be the case. The House Judiciary committee, led by ISP-loyal politicians, is attempting to block the net neutrality rules.

A recent letter from house judiciary committee members detailed the committee’s intent to repeal the net neutrality rules.

This attempt has little hope at success as the White House stated on November 10, 2014 that it preferred real net neutrality. LinkedIn suggests this means that any legislation attempting to block or repeal the net neutrality rules will find stiff opposition from the White House. If a bill does make its way to President Obama’s desk, one can be certain that it will be vetoed.

The process to overturn a veto requires a enough votes to override a veto, which is extremely unlikely. Analysts are saying that this measure is simply intended to delay the rules.
