U.S. senator urges FCC net neutrality hearings outside Washington

Senate Judiciary Committee members Leahy and Grassley confer during NSA hearing on Capitol Hill in WashingtonU.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy on Wednesday called on the Federal Communications Commission to host hearings on its new proposed “net neutrality” rules outside of Washington, not just at its offices in the U.S. capital. The FCC is working to write new so-called “net neutrality” rules that regulate how Internet service providers (ISPs) manage traffic on their networks. More than 1 million comments have poured into the FCC on the issue, many of them opposing the rules tentatively proposed by the FCC. The FCC is now planning six roundtable discussions in September and October at its offices in Washington, where the public can meet with FCC staff to talk about the proposed rules and how they may be changed.
