Saving Net Neutrality - Blumenthal to Host Town Hall

Joined by FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, Blumenthal to Highlight Harms from Net Neutrality Repeal

(Hartford, CT) – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) announced today he will host Federal Communications Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel for a Town Hall to Save Net Neutrality at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 15 at Goodwin College in East Hartford.  

Senator Blumenthal is part of a bipartisan coalition in the Senate fighting to overturn the Federal Communications Commission decision to repeal net neutrality. Senators need just one more vote to pass a Congressional Review Act resolution of disapproval to overturn the deeply destructive decision. Senator Blumenthal will take stories from the Town Hall with him to the Senate floor as he fights for the final vote needed to preserve the free internet.

Net neutrality means internet service providers cannot block, slow down, or discriminate against content online. Without Senate action to restore net neutrality, consumers could face higher prices, slower streaming speeds and even blocked websites.
