SAG-AFTRA Statement on Senate Net Neutrality Vote

 

Los Angeles (May 16, 2018) —Today the U.S. Senate voted 53-47 to maintain the net neutrality rules adopted by the FCC in 2015. SAG-AFTRA issued the following statement:

 

“We commend the senators who voted today to undo the FCC’s order repealing net neutrality rules. We support the basic principles that companies should provide their users with access to all lawfully distributed content on reasonably non-discriminatory terms, they should be prohibited from favoring their own content over the content of an unaffiliated provider and they should be prohibited from prioritizing the content of one unaffiliated provider over that of another. We continue to urge the government to work toward the goal of preserving a free and open Internet and to maintain and strengthen the distinction between the transmission of lawful and unlawful content.”
