Daines Statement on Abhorrent Net Neutrality Decision

U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines today issued the following statement after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals sustained the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) net neutrality rules: 

“This decision is an affront to hardworking Americans who rely on the internet for economic opportunity and access to critical communication services,” Daines stated. “Net Neutrality remains a solution in search of a problem that kills jobs, chills innovation and slows investment. I will continue working in the Senate to maintain a free and open internet to rein in the Obama administration’s regulatory overreach.”

Before serving in Congress, Daines worked in the technology sector for more than twelve years. He served as vice president of Montana-based RightNow Technologies, a global leader in cloud computing and multi-billion dollar technology company that became Bozeman, Montana’s largest commercial employer.
