Press Release

FRESNO, CA – Today Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) issued the following statement after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai announced his proposal to repeal net neutrality rules issued by the FCC in 2015:

“An open internet, with equal access for all, is important to our future. In our society and across the global economy, the internet has become an essential tool for businesses and individuals to connect, engage, innovate, raise their voice, and share their vision. Net neutrality is a principle that provides equal access to content, platforms, and websites. This is why I support net neutrality and why we need a stable policy that protects individual consumers, businesses, and all Americans equally.”
