Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) issued the following statement after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) put forward its plan on Net Neutrality rules:

“I’m very encouraged by the FCC’s plan to free the Internet from the overly burdensome regulations imposed by the previous Administration. Much of the innovation we’ve seen in America over the last several decades has been driven by a free and open Internet - it’s imperative that this type of innovative environment is restored. Additionally, it’s vital that the FCC and Congress continue working together to close the ‘digital divide’ that has left millions of Americans in rural areas – including a large number of those I represent - behind when it comes to internet access.  Access to broadband internet is critical for Americans to pursue today’s educational and economic opportunities.”
