Action Alert! Ask Senators to vote NO on overturning net neutrality order

——————————————————————————————————

11/11/2011 Update: SJ Res 6, the anit-net neutrality bill, was defeated in the Senate yesterday. For details, please see the Legislative Panel blog posting.

——————————————————————————————————

This week, the Senate will be voting on Senate Joint Resolution 6 (SJ Res 6) to overturn the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) order that was passed to adopt net neutrality. The American Library Association Washington Office (ALA-WO) is asking people to call their Senators and ask them to vote NO on SJ Res 6. The message is that libraries depend on an open and non-discriminatory Internet to provide the public with unfettered access to information. For more talking points, please see the Capwiz Action Alert. You can call Senator Mikulski at 202-224-4654 and Senator Cardin at 202-224-4524.

In April, the House passed a similar resolution to overturn net neutrality—House Joint Resolution 47 (HJ Res 47). For more information on HJ Res 47, see the Legislative Panel blog post. For more of the previous updates on net neutrality, see the Legislative Panel blog posts.

Thanks in advance for any advocacy efforts!
