Speaker Pelosi backs FCC plan to assert broadband oversight: report
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview with bloggers Tuesday that she supports the Federal Communications Commission's plan to redefine broadband as a telecommunications service, according to the blog Fire Dog Lake, The Seminal.
"Reclassification, net neutrality, universal access for every American, these are priorities for us. And we see it not in isolation but as part of a new propserity, as a job creator, to make America healthier, smarter and an international leader," Pelosi said, according to left-leaning site.
Her comments come after a barrage of bipartisan opposition to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski's plan to reclassify broadband -- a move that will begin to take shape at the agency's next meeting June 17. Pelosi said a bill to stop the FCC's push for net neutrality rules and the expansion of broadband Internet connections wouldn't happen on her watch.
