Appoint a fifth FCC commissioner and restore net neutrality!
We demand that President Biden appoint and the Senate quickly confirm a fifth commissioner to the FCC who will restore net neutrality!
Why is this important?
The fate of the open internet is in the hands of two Trump appointees -- unless Joe Biden acts now.
Ajit Pai, who as Federal Communications Commission chair under Donald Trump led the repeal of net neutrality, resigned from the FCC when Joe Biden became president. Nearly half a year later, the fifth FCC seat remains empty.
Meanwhile, two of Trump's appointees are still on the FCC. With a 2-2 deadlock, they can continue to block key priorities until the vacancy is filled. In order to reinstate net neutrality and protect internet users from corporate control, we need President Biden to fill the fifth seat.
