House Moves to Protect Small Biz from FCC Internet Takeover

House Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot hailed House passage of H.R. 288, the Small Business Broadband Deployment Act. This legislation exempts small businesses from burdensome new Internet regulations imposed by President Obama’s Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) for five years. The measure also increases the number of small businesses that can use the exemption from the FCC’s “Open Internet Order,” commonly known as “net neutrality.”
