WASHINGTON — President Biden today signed an executive order on net neutrality and broadband access.

Kate Ruane, ACLU senior legislative counsel, said:

“We applaud President Biden for urging the FCC to take actions that will restore net neutrality and help to lower broadband costs and ensure necessary transparency. But for the agency to achieve those goals, we need a full slate of FCC Commissioners. Biden must appoint a fifth FCC Commissioner immediately.”
