What Others are Saying: the FCC and Title II
In February, the Federal Communications Commission chose to impose Title II requirements on the Internet in a partisan 3-2 vote. Rather than working with Congress to find a bipartisan way to ensure the Internet remains open in America, the FCC overreached its authority, unilaterally imposing a Depression-era regulatory framework through heavy-handed executive fiat.
The consequences of this move are severe: this type of rulemaking impedes growth in a critical sector of the American economy. This type of red tape will strangle the innovation we have seen Internet companies for the past two decades demonstrate. It should come as no surprise, then, that thought leaders from a diverse array of critical sectors in our nation’s economy have a lot to say about the decision, some of which we have compiled for your reference below:
