WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) today released the following statement on the Federal Communications Commission’s net neutrality vote.  

“As a strong supporter of a free and open internet, I am opposed to the Federal Communications Commission’s vote to eliminate net neutrality rules. These important protections prevent internet service providers from blocking, slowing and prioritizing web traffic. This vote will harm consumers, particularly in rural areas. It will limit competition. And it will hurt small business entrepreneurship and innovation. I will continue to push for a free and open internet.”
