“[I]t’s hard to view this as anything other than foreshadowing for a backdoor effort to water down the bill or add ISP-approved loopholes,” Tabish added.
On Twitter, Fight for the Future urged Americans to pressure their representatives to reject any efforts to weaken the Save the Internet Act.
“We don’t care which party you’re from: if you’re helping Big Cable slowly poison net neutrality and the free and open internet, we’re going to make sure everyone knows,” the group declared. “Don’t sell out to Big Cable—support the Save the Net Act, with no weakening amendments!”
The effort to stop all amendments to the Save the Internet Act comes as a coalition of internet advocacy groups is pressuring the hundreds of members of Congress who have not signed on to the legislation. Net neutrality campaigners are giving lawmakers until Friday to co-sponsor the Save the Internet Act.
“If you choose to put the telecom giants ahead of your constituents, we will make sure that every single one of your constituents knows you sold them out for cable money,” Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future, said in a statement directed at members of Congress. “You have until close of business on Friday, March 15th.”
