House committee sets meeting date to weigh FCC's net neutrality rules

The House Communications Subcommittee has scheduled a hearing on the Federal Communications Commission's new net neutrality rules for Feb. 16, according to published reports.

Committee chair, Rep. Chairman Greg Walden, (R-Ore.), along with Energy and Commerce Committee chair Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) have both said they'll lead the charge to block the rules from being adopted.

Non-profit group Public Knowledge, meanwhile, has launched a campaign to protect the rules, asking members to contact their representatives in Congress and ask them to support the new regs.
