House Disapproves FCC Rule to Regulate the Internet

On April 8th, 2011, the House voted 240-179 on House Joint Resolution 37 which disapproves the FCC determination that the Internet is effectively a communication transmission mechanism, and as such is subject to regulation by the FCC in a manner like phone services.

Two Republicans, David Reichert (WA-8) and Scott Rigell (VA-2) voted against the measure, while six Democrats joined the majority for the measure: Bishop (GA-2), Boren (OK-2), Peterson (MN-7), Schrader (OR-5), Scott (GA-13), and Thompson (MS-2).
