US Senate Pushes Net Neutrality Vote

US Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) has filed a petition to force a vote to overturn the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) vote in December to repeal federal net neutrality rules. According to the rules set forth by the Congressional Review Act, Congress has the ability to overturn any federal agency policy decision, as long as they have 30 senators supporting the move. That support was gained back in January and now pro-net neutrality Senators are working on garnering the bare majority (51 votes or more) they need to pass the repeal of the repeal.
