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.
