Collins Responds to President’s Plans to Treat the Internet as a Utility

Nov 10, 2014
Press Release

Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) responds to the President urging the FCC to regulate the Internet as a utility under Title II of the Communications Act.

“The Internet has revolutionized the way we live and obtain information largely because it has been readily accessible and free from unnecessary government regulation,” said Congressman Collins. “The President’s statement today urging the FCC to regulate the Internet as a utility under Title II of the Communications Act is extremely concerning.”

“The Internet’s success is directly connected to the freedom in which it can be accessed and the lack of restrictive government regulations impinging its innovation. I will fight hard against this dangerous classification and work to ensure the Internet remains free and open.”
