GOP Senator: FCC Vote Will Put Internet at ‘Great Risk,’ ‘In Jeopardy’

Tuesday at the Senate Republicans leadership press conference, Sen. John Thune (R-SD) warned February 26 could go down in history as the day the FCC took “carte blanche authority,” and imposed massive government regulations over the internet with a partisan vote on a 332-page secret plan.

Thune said he is wiling to work with the president and the FCC on a solution, “that  doesn’t cede to the FCC unlimited authority for them to do whatever they want and to put at great risk and in jeopardy something that has been an incredible success story for this country and for the world, and that’s the internet.”
