Senate Bill to Restore Net Neutrality Achieves Important Milestone

Enlarge  US Capitol Building in Washington

The bill also requires the California Public Utilities Commission to establish new rules to enforce net neutrality. Both the president and senior vice president of the association have backgrounds in policymaking.

Trump's FCC commissioners have tried to protect their friends in Big Telecom by forbidding states from passing their own net neutrality rules.

Included within the final draft is the definition of broadband Internet access service as an "information service" as opposed to a "telecommunications service".

Ex-engineer sues Google for discriminating against conservative white males
Damore, 28, says he submitted early versions of his memo to Google's human resources department without being reprimanded. He finds fault in company executives like Ruth Porat, for example, the chief financial officer of Google.

"We'll be going to court soon to challenge the FCC and ramping up pressure on Congress to throw the rules out altogether..." Democrats are eager to make net neutrality a political issue, and they want Republicans on-record taking a stance they're convinced will be unpopular.

Realize that if the net neutrality repeal succeeds certain websites will be blocked, access to certain websites will be slowed, and there will be a toll for access to certain types of content. Adam Morfeld of Lincoln, would bring net neutrality rules power to the state level. These conflicts will likely take some time as there is little precedent to lean on, or similar arguments in other areas could be interpreted in several different ways. Opposition has lost a battle, which turned bitter and quite personal quickly, and has moved onto the being hard stage.

Though Pai does mention in a statement that ISP will be required to disclose a lot more public information for increased transparency that in previous years.

After Tense CNN Interview with Stephen Miller, President Trump Fires Back
He described the former chief strategist's role as "greatly exaggerated" and twice called Trump a "political genius ". Miller said the credit goes not to Bannon, but to Trump's first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat from Missouri announced Monday she will be the 30th co-sponsor of a bill that will use the Congressional Review Act to reverse the FCC's vote to dismantle the net neutrality rules.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is another which has stepped forward in support of the Californian bill.

The draft goes on to argue that "ISPs have strong incentives to preserve Internet openness, and these interests typically outweigh any countervailing incentives an ISP might have" furthering its argument for a light-touch approach to internet legislation. It hasn't proposed any legal action to combat the new rules just yet, but it is not usually shy about fighting Republican intentions.

KMart closing in Rutland in early April
A liquidation sale at the Springfield store, at the north end of The Shoppes, could begin as soon as January 12, the company said. Sears had already been planning to downsize in Orland Park , where it's been an anchor store since the mall opened in 1976.

There are few people who will occupy the middle ground here, partly due to the emotional euphoria which has been whipped up into a frenzy by both sides. Their announcement came on January 5, the day after the FCC introduced the final rules that will govern the internet under this repeal. The sensible solution will be in the middle, but since when has politics ever been sensible.
