-“The legislative activity undertaken by Congress since the 1996 Act demonstrates that Congress never intended the Title II-type net neutrality obligations the FCC imposes on broadband providers in the Order and certainly never imagined the radical step of reclassification, which goes far beyond even the legislative proposals for rules that were repeatedly rejected by Congress. Since 1996, Congress considered and rejected numerous bills that would have conferred power upon the FCC to promulgate so-called ‘net neutrality’ or ‘open Internet’ regulations – many of which were sponsored or supported by Members who joined the Markey-Eshoo Amicus Brief.”

Excerpt from a brief filed with the federal court of appeals in Washington, D.C. by Tennessee Republican Congresswoman Marsh Blackburn and 22 of her Republican colleagues regarding the court’s ongoing case regarding the FCC net neutrality rules.
