suraj.sun writes with this quote from CNet: “House Republicans voted unanimously today to block controversial Net neutrality regulations from taking effect, a move that is likely to invite a confrontation with President Obama. By a vote of 241 to 178, the House of Representatives adopted a one-page resolution that says, simply, the regulations adopted by the Federal Communications Commission on December 21 ‘shall have no force or effect.’ ‘Congress did not authorize the FCC to regulate in this area,’ Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.), said during this morning’s floor debate. ‘We must reject any rules that it promulgates in this area… It is Congress’ responsibility to delegate that authority.’”
