"This is a moment where the entire Internet needs to go all-in for net neutrality", Fight for the Future's deputy director, Evan Greer, wrote in a statement. "A vote against this resolution will be a vote to protect large corporations and special interests, leaving the American public to pay the price". If the measure passes the House, it will go to the President, who can veto it if he so chooses.

Under the original net neutrality rule, internet service providers were also banned from providing faster internet access and preferred services to companies for extra fees - so called "fast lanes". They were the focus of heavy lobbying by net neutrality supporters in recent days in hopes of having a stronger bipartisan vote.

"This is our chance - our best chance - to make sure the internet stays accessible and affordable for all Americans", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., who runs the Senate GOP's 2018 campaign operation and voted against the resolution.

Net neutrality is an issue that resonates among certain Democratic voters, particularly millennials who might be persuaded to turn out in greater numbers in November's midterm elections that may determine which party controls the House and Senate, where Republicans hold a 51-49 margin. Republicans used this talking point to argue that ISPs shouldn't be forced to operate under different rules than websites in their support for ending net neutrality protections. With senators and representatives all too willing to vote along party lines, the odds are certainly stacked against this effort by Democrats in Congress to block the FCC's "Restoring Internet Freedom Order".

Currently, the effort to retain Net Neutrality has the backing of 50 USA senators, including that of Republican Susan Collins.

What is the net neutrality CRA?

Democrats think the fight to restore the rules could be a political victor during November's congressional midterm elections even if the effort is unsuccessful because it will force Republicans to vote against reinstating the rules. Edward Markey of MA, sought to stop the FCC's repeal of the Obama-era rules by using their authority under the Congressional Review Act to nullify the commission's vote last December. The resolution being offered by Democrats passed with the support of all 49 members of the Democratic caucus and three Republicans - Senators Collins, R-Maine, John Kennedy, R-La., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska. We won't know until the vote later today, but signs are looking up for Obama's liberating online effort.

The Senate resolution - led by Sen.

The effort to maintain net neutrality protections is expected to face more of a challenge in the House, where Democrats would need more than two dozen Republicans to join them to even bring it up for a vote, according to reports. Many Republicans consider these requirements burdensome for internet providers, and that competition in an open market will allow industry players to self-govern.

Republicans like Rep. Scott Taylor of Virginia think Democrats are wrong on the policy of net neutrality, and that eliminating FCC rules will expand competition and consumer choice.
