After the Federal Communications Commission voted earlier this year to nix net neutrality, the U.S. Senate today passed the Congressional Review Act discharge resolution meant to preserve it.

Calling the Senate’s 52-47 vote “a historic victory for the free and open Internet, and a major step forward for the future of free expression and democracy,” Evan Greer, Fight for the Future deputy director, said in a statement, “Now that the CRA resolution has passed the Senate, every House member has a choice to make: Will they side with some of the most hated companies in America, or will they listen to the overwhelming majority of their constituents and small businesses in their districts, and vote to keep the Internet free from censorship, throttling, and expensive new fees?”

The National Hispanic Media Coalition applauded the Senate for listening to its constituents. “Today the Senate puts us one step closer towards preserving the strong FCC Net Neutrality rules which empowered Latinos and secured our right to access the internet without discrimination,” Carmen Scurato vice president, policy and general counsel of the organization, said in a statement urging the House “to move this CRA forward.”
