There are only 18 Democrats in Congress that have yet to support the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to restore net neutrality protections repealed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in December 2017.

The 18 Democrats are all members of the House of Representatives, and while many of them will say that they support net neutrality — none have actually supported Congress’ single best shot to completely reinstate the protections (the CRA).

Unless the House votes to overrule the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality during the lame duck session, we will run out of time to use the Senate-passed CRA to save net neutrality.

Here’s the list. Contact these elected officials today and ask them: “Why haven’t you signed the discharge petition to save net neutrality?” Want to know where your own reps stand? Check the net neutrality scoreboard!

Only one GOP House member has signed on to support the CRA to reverse the FCC’s resoundingly unpopular repeal of net neutrality.

Fight for the Future, with the help of Internet activists, startups, celebrities, and major web companies, is preparing for DeadlineForNetNeutrality.com, a final Internet-Wide Day of Action this Thursday, November 29th, ahead of the December 10th deadline for the House to act on the Senate-passed net neutrality CRA resolution (H.J.Res. 129).

The fight is not over. Congress can still overrule the FCC and save net neutrality. But they’ll only do it if we make them.
