Democrats on Capitol Hill are pushing hard to restore Obama-era net neutrality protections.
More than a year after the Republican-led Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal the popular 2015 rules, lawmakers in Washington are duking it out to get protections in place. Democrats in the House will vote as soon as Tuesday on the Save the Internet Act, which would reinstate the regulation, which lasted from 2015 to 2018.
