BROADBAND BREAKFAST INSIGHT: With the House Rules Committee’s decision to press for a House vote on internet privacy on Tuesday, it’s an “all hands on deck” sort of moment, as multiple parties weight into the pros and cons of approving the Senate’s use of the Congressional Review Act to overturn Obama administration privacy rules.

ISPs and ad industry execs are getting together with the press Tuesday for a call in advance of the House consideration of a resolution to repeal the FCC’s broadband privacy regs.

The Congressional Review Act resolution passed the Senate 50-48 last week, and House majority leader Kevin McCarthy has scheduled debate to begin in the house on the resolution (S.J. Res. 34) at noon, with a vote likely somewhere between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.

“Withdrawing the FCC’s flawed two-tiered privacy regulations is a vital step towards developing a truly comprehensive and effective privacy framework for the entire internet based on the successful FTC approach,” said NCTA: The Internet & Television Association in announcing the conference call.
