Leahy Sets Judiciary Committee Field Hg. In Vermont On NET NEUTRALITY –

“I have heard from hundreds of Vermonters who have expressed concerns about aspects of Chairman Wheeler’s proposed approach to new net neutrality rules and I share their concerns.  I am still waiting to see the full details of this proposal, but I also believe it is critical to highlight the importance of ensuring that the Internet remains an open marketplace for ideas.  I intend to hold a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in Vermont the first week in July to examine the impact of open Internet rules on competition and consumers.”
