Internet Freedom, Regulation, and Congress: A Discussion with FCC Chairman Ajit Pai

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20002
United States

Chairman Pai’s announcement that the FCC will repeal the classification of internet service providers under Title II of the Communications Act has prompted a robust discussion. With the FCC set to vote on the notice of proposed rulemaking on May 18, what are the concerns and issues that Congress should be aware of? What are ways this issue can be communicated with constituents? What are the next steps policymakers can and should take to maintain the vibrancy of the internet? Please join us for a lunch discussion of these questions and more with Chairman Pai and a panel of experts.
