In a major win for net neutrality in Alaska, the State Senate has formally called on Congress to use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the FCC’s undemocratic repeal of net neutrality.

This comes just weeks after Senator Lisa Murkowski published an op-ed suggesting she was open to supporting the CRA resolution to overturn the FCC’s net neutrality repeal — but stopped short of saying that she’d actually vote for the bill.

But now the State Senate has officially sent a strong message to Senator Murkowski that Alaskans are demanding the return of a fully free and open internet.

Help us amplify that message to secure Senator Murkowski’s vote for the CRA:

  1. Call Senator Murkowski at (202)-224–6665 and say “I’m a constituent and I’m joining our State Senate and the vast majority of Alaskans in demanding that Senator Murkowski vote for the CRA resolution to overturn the FCC’s net neutrality repeal.”
  2. Tweet to @LisaMurkowski: “Alaskans are demanding TRUE #netneutrality, and now our state legislature is too! @LisaMurkowski, please support the CRA resolution to restore it: https://t.co/35Qy7fsVaf
  3. If you own or work for a small business in Alaska, sign the open letter from businesses demanding Congress support the CRA resolution.

If we can convince Senator Murkowski to vote for the CRA, she will be the 51st and final senator we need to pass the bill and move on to the House of Representatives, where the bill already has 160 supporters.

But we need you to pick up the phone and start tweeting to make this happen.
