Ajit Pai today celebrated a victory in his ongoing quest to prevent the US government from enforcing net neutrality rules.
The Pai-led Federal Communications Commission repealed Obama-era net neutrality rules, but the repeal could have been reversed by Congress if it acted before the end of its session. Democrats won a vote to reverse the repeal in the Senate but weren't able to get enough votes in the House of Representatives before time ran out.
