On April 8, the US House of Representatives passed legislation that  
seeks to overturn the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC)  
December 2010 network neutrality rules. The bill invokes Congressional  
authority to override regulatory agency rulemaking. If the Senate  
passes the bill, it is expected that President Obama will veto it. Net  
neutrality is the principle that Internet users should have the right  
to access and provide content and use services via the Internet as  
they wish, and that network operators should not be allowed to  
"discriminate" against Internet traffic--by slowing or blocking it or  
by charging fees--based on the source or content of its message. The  
net neutrality rules approved by the FCC reflect an attempt at a  
compromise between network operators and advocates for strong net  
neutrality protections, including ARL, ALA, and EDUCAUSE. For more  
information, visit the ARL website.
