Net Neutrality Updates

Net Neutrality is back in the spotlight this week on the campaign trail and inside the Beltway. Stumping in Iowa on Tuesday, Jeb Bush made reversing the FCC’s open internet rules a focal point of his latest policy rollout, organized around proposals to cut federal regulations and shift authority to the states. Several of his rivals for the GOP nomination have also been critical of net neutrality measures, ncluding Sens.Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.
