House Republicans Tell FCC Not to Set Internet-Service Rules Now

Nineteen House Republicans told Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski to set aside plans to vote soon on rules governing how companies led by AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. provide Internet service.

“Reigniting the network neutrality debate” will distract Congress and the FCC and “jeopardize investment, innovation and jobs,” the lawmakers led by Representative Joe Barton of Texas, the top Republican on the Energy and Commerce Committee, said today in a letter to Genachowski.
