Last Action: 
Feb 3, 2014

On February 3, 2014, Ranking Members Henry A. Waxman and Anna G. Eshoo introduced H.R. 3982, the Open Internet Preservation Act.  The legislation restores the Open Internet Rules struck down by the D.C. Circuit in January 2014 that prohibit broadband Internet service providers from engaging in discriminatory behavior or blocking content altogether.  Under the bill, the rules would remain in effect until the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) takes new final action in the Open Internet proceeding.
