The following statement can be attributed to Mark Stanley, Director of Communications for Demand Progress:
“Senator Collins’ support of the resolution to restore net neutrality protections is what it looks like when a Republican lawmaker stands with their constituents instead of telecom lobbyists. The FCC net neutrality repeal was a massive giveaway to the telecom industry achieved through a deeply flawed process that ignored public input. The vast majority of Americans, regardless of political affiliation, oppose the FCC order.
‘If all Democrats support Senator Markey’s resolution to restore net neutrality—which already has over 40 cosponsors and is guaranteed a floor vote—then only one more Republican is needed to pass the Senate. We call on all lawmakers, Democrats and Republicans alike, to support this crucial resolution to restore net neutrality.”
