BREAKING: One more member of Congress just announced support for the resolution to restore net neutrality. Will these other Democrats follow or do they work for Big Cable?

This morning Representative Joe Morelle (D NY-25) announced he will sign the discharge petition for the CRA resolution overturning the FCC’s net neutrality repeal in a comment to a Motherboard. Rep. Morelle is the first congress person to announce their support for the CRA in months, as more than a dozen Democrats in the pockets of big ISP lobbyists remain off of the discharge petition.

This comes as thousands of activists, businesses, and celebrities prepare for tomorrow’s day of action for net neutrality at

While we’re excited about this victory — our work has just begun.

At this point, passing the CRA in the House before the December 10th deadline would take a herculean effort. But we’re staying on the offense until the last minute to force as many House lawmakers as possible to take a position on the record for strong net neutrality protections. This will put us in the best possible position for whatever comes next in the fight — most likely fending off bad legislation that would permanently undermine net neutrality from telecom-captured lawmakers like incoming Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Call the remaining Democratic holdouts and tell them to follow Rep. Morelle’s lead and sign the discharge petition. The future of the Internet as we know it depends on it.
