Senate Republicans oppose net neutrality

Twenty-nine Republican senators wrote to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Julius Genachowski this week to oppose his proposal to regulate Internet lines.

The letter is signed by Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) and 27 others. They urged Genachowski to abandon his effort.

"This is an unjustified and unnecessary expansion of government control over private enterprise," the letter says.

The FCC will vote on proposed net neutrality rules on Dec. 21.
