On Capitol Hill, Senate Democrats are urging House Republican leaders to hold a vote on a bill that would reverse the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality rules. Without congressional intervention, the FCC’s new policy will go into effect on Monday. It would allow internet service providers to throttle internet traffic speeds according to how much customers pay—or based on which websites they wish to favor. Last month, the Senate voted 52 to 47 to reverse the FCC’s rollback of net neutrality rules. On Thursday, the entire Senate Democratic Caucus sent a letter to Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan demanding he bring a companion bill to the House floor.
