The Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 yesterday to approve net neutrality rules making it the first time the FCC has attempted to regulate internet access.  Congressman Steve King (R-IA) told Caffeinated Thoughts today that he supports “an open and independent internet.”  He went on to say, “I think that consumers should be free to access the internet and run the applications and programs they want to run without unwarranted government interference.”

Consumers he said are best served “by true competition between network and content providers to help keep prices down and allow the free market to work without government meddling.”
