Wyden Statement on Net Neutrality

Washington, D.C. –U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden issued the following statement after today's House vote on net neutrality:

"Change doesn’t start in Washington, D.C., and trickle down. It starts from the grassroots. Today the House of Representatives listened to people in Oregon and across the country, and voted to make an open internet the law of the land once again.

"This bill would enshrine in law the principle that small businesses and libraries and rural hospitals are on equal footing with the biggest corporations online. Senate Republicans should listen to Americans, not big cable, and pass this bill."
