In a monumental decision, the U.S. Senate voted on Wednesday to reinstate the net neutrality protections the Federal Communications Commission decided to repeal last December. Last week, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai confirmed that the repeal of the 2015 Open Internet Order would go into effect on June 11. But Democrats used their power under the Congressional Review Act to review new regulations by federal agencies through an expedited legislative process. Under the CRA, only a simple majority is needed to pass legislation. With all Democrats on board, only a single Republican needed to vote in favor of restoring net neutrality rules. Senators Susan Collins, Joe Kennedy, and Lisa Murkowski all broke from their GOP colleagues and ensured that the resolution passed.
