According to a report by Gizmodo, Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday formally introduced legislation to save net neutrality from the Federal Communication Commission.
The measure is expected to fail to reverse the FCC's decision on net neutrality, however it reportedly comes packed with a ticking time bomb for Republicans. Led by Massachusetts Sen.
Ed Markey, the resolution would reverse the Restoring Internet Freedom order through the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to overturn agency regulations.
In the Senate, the resolution has garnered 50 of the 51 votes needed to pass the chamber’s Republican majority, with all 49 members of the Democratic caucus, including Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins backing the measure..
