The Federal Communications Commission's effort to impose internet regulations known as “net neutrality” has sparked opposition among many Republicans. This policy just proves that the FCC needs new leadership at the top, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., a member of Federal, Communications, Commission, net, neutrality, marsha, neutralitythe House Communications subcommittee, told The Hill in an interview.

"There is no doubt they need new leadership at the FCC," she says, calling its end-of-year effort to impose new regulations a "scramble." The commission’s chairman is Julius Genachowski, who was appointed by President Barack Obama

Republicans will act to forestall net neutrality rules whether the FCC applies them as part of Title I of the Communications Act or the more onerous Title II, Blackburn promises. "We pledge to do our part to make sure the Internet stays free and open so that innovators and content creators don't have to go to the FCC for permission to create and innovate on the next generation of technologies," she says.
