Congress has a couple more weeks to reinstate Obama-era net neutrality rules – CNET

Time is running out to reinstate Obama-era net neutrality rules through a legislative loophole that allows lawmakers to undo federal regulation.

Today, was supposed to be the deadline for the US House of Representatives to gather enough signatures to force a vote on a Congressional Review Act petition that would roll back the FCC’s repeal of the popular 2015 rules. The CRA gives the House and Senate set periods of time to undo recently enacted federal regulations.

The Senate passed its CRA resolution in May. The House has until the end of the year to pass its resolution. Then it must it be signed by President Trump to take effect, which many believe is unlikely given Trump’s penchant for reducing federal regulation.
