Senate Approves Overturning FCC’s Net Neutrality Repeal

Senate Democrats emerged victorious in Wednesday’s showdown on the chamber floor by a vote of 52-47 to undo the FCC’s December repeal of Obama-era net neutrality rules.

Republican Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and John Kennedy (La.) crossed party lines to vote in favor of using the Congressional Review Act to scrap the FCC’s repeal order. The late addition of Murkowski and Kennedy expanded what had been a razor-thin margin of victory. Before this afternoon, Collins had been the sole Republican pledging to vote with the Democrats, giving them the 50-49 simple majority they needed for victory in the absence of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
