House telecom subpanel to vote on net neutrality

The House Energy and Commerce Communications subcommittee will vote Wednesday on a resolution of disapproval regarding net-neutrality rules passed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in December. 

The Republicans want to repeal net neutrality rules using the Congressional Review Act, which requires a simple majority in both chambers. Analysts say President Obama, who favor net-neutrality rules, is almost sure to veto such legislation.

House Speaker John Boehner in a speech on Sunday expressed strong opposition to net-neutrality rules. "The last thing we need, in my view, is the FCC serving as Internet traffic controller," he said.

The vote will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the 2123 Rayburn House Office Building. Here is a copy of the bill.
