April 2010 AFP Update


Take Action

Tell Obama’s FCC to Stop the Internet Takeover

Tomorrow is the last day to submit a reply-comment to the FCC opposing “net neutrality” regulations. We scored a victory with the court ruling against the FCC yesterday but they aren’t giving up on their mission to take over the Internet.

“Net neutrality” rules would put government regulators, instead of the market, in a position to determine which business models can be used, and these restrictions will likely deter private investment, slowing the remarkable innovation we have seen over the past decade of a largely unregulated Internet.

Stop the EPA’s Global Warming Power Grab

The Obama administration intends to bypass Congress and implement outrageous global warming regulation of the entire U.S. economy through the EPA. Tell your Congressman and Senators to stop the EPA’s power grab here .
