U.S. SENATE News:

 

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, chairman of the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Subcommittee, issued the following statement expressing concern about the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) vote Thursday for net neutrality rules that include a "fast lane" or "toll lane" to charge companies for faster delivery of content: 

 

"Today's vote by the FCC is very disappointing. As the commissioners move forward to make a final rule, I'm calling on them to protect free expression, competition and innovation online. I oppose adding Internet 'toll lanes,' which would drastically change the Web as we know it. I've heard from hundreds of New Mexicans who want to ensure fair and open access, and I encourage them to continue to speak up and make their voices heard. I'll continue to work alongside them to ensure the Internet remains an open and fair forum for everyone."
