Kilmer Statement in Support of Net Neutrality

TACOMA, WA—Following the FCC’s announcement of a plan to repeal key regulations that ensure equal access to the internet, Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-WA) released the following statement:

“I support net neutrality and believe we must protect a free and open internet. I oppose the Trump Administration proposal put forward today because it would stifle innovation and harm consumers. The FCC should reject this proposal, and instead Congress should update telecommunications laws and make sure they are relevant to today’s economy.”
