Opposing UN Control

By Brad

Last month, the House of Representatives voted to oppose regulation of the Internet by the United Nations (you can read our thoughts on the subject here). Now, Brendan Sasso of The Hill reports, the Senate is also taking up the cause:

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), the sponsor of the resolution, said he is not sure when there will be a vote in the full Senate. He said scheduling can be a challenge, but he is hopeful the measure will pass with unanimous support.

“We haven’t found anyone who is against it yet, so that’s a good sign,” Rubio told reporters after the committee vote.

Sen. Rubio’s resolution was approved unanimously by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
