Hispanic Leadership Reacts to Threat Of FCC Vote

 WASHINGTON -- The Hispanic Leadership Fund, a national non-partisan advocacy organization that promotes limited government and free enterprise, has reiterated its opposition to the FCC's planned vote next month on net neutrality that will impose harmful new regulations on broadband companies across the country. The organization cited negative impacts to job growth, private investment and small business growth, and urged Congress to intervene to prevent a government takeover of the internet.


"After the White House promised a renewed focus on job growth, I am appalled that it appears the FCC will move forward on their plan to forcibly reclassify broadband service in America. The FCC's expected announcement will mean a vote on a wide range of new regulations that will end the era of innovative, free-market internet growth and job creation," said Mario H. Lopez, president of the Hispanic Leadership Fund.


"Hispanics would be especially hurt by these policies that will undoubtedly discourage broadband providers from expanding access to high-speed internet in rural and urban communities, which impacts everything from new education opportunities to healthcare access to job creation. I implore the FCC to re-consider the widespread impact these policies will have on nearly every consumer in America," Lopez said.
