WASHINGTON July 22, 2010- A group of seven Republican Senators have introduced a bill which will prevent the Federal Communications Commission from reregulating broadband. The bill will mandate the FCC make market based reforms.

The official title of the bill is: “A bill to encourage continued investment and innovation in communications networks by establishing a new, competition analysis-based regulatory framework for the Federal Communications Commission.” The text of the bill has not yet been released this title does give insight into its contents

Unofficially it is being called the Freedom for Consumer Choice Act and is being sponsored by Senators Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina), Senators Orrin Hatch (R- Utah), John Ensign (R-Nevada), John Thune (R- South Dakota), Tom Coburn (R- Oklahoma), John Cornyn (R-Texas), and Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama).

In a statement Senator Hatch said: “Since the FCC has a hard time listening to the American people, we’re stepping forward with commonsense legislation to keep these unelected bureaucrats’ hands off the Internet. This bill is simple – the FCC would have to demonstrate that consumers won’t be harmed if these dangerous and costly ‘net-neutrality’ regulations are put into place. We’ve heard from people across the country who have said these regulations will destroy innovation, consumer choice, and most importantly jobs. With our nation’s unemployment rate just under ten percent and our economy struggling, the Administration should listen to the American people and stop these job-killing rules.”
