Restoration of net neutrality rules hits key milestone in Senate
Senate Democrats who are trying to force a vote on reinstating net neutrality rules have hit a key milestone.
A Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution that would reverse the Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality repeal needed 30 co-sponsors in order to get a Senate vote. Today, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) announced that she has signed on to be the 30th co-sponsor.
30 is the magic number of cosponsors needed to get a #NetNeutrality vote in the full Senate.
Proud to be that 30th cosponsor of @SenMarkey bill to restore free and open internet.

Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) announced the CRA resolution shortly after the FCC's repeal vote last month. All 30 supporters are members of the Democratic caucus.
