ALA Pledges Support for Net Neutrality

Jim Neal, current ALA president, released a statement on the proposed Net Neutrality order by Ajit Pai, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman. The FCC plans to vote on the order on Dec. 14. Neal said the following:

Preserving net neutrality is essential for equitable access to online information and services and thus a vital concern for our nation’s libraries. Now that the internet has become the primary mechanism for delivering information, services and applications to the general public, it is especially important that commercial Internet Service Providers are not able to control or manipulate the content of these communications. Libraries, our patrons and America’s communities will be at risk if the FCC repeals all protections contained in its 2015 Open Internet Order with no plans to replace [them] with any enforceable rules. We strenuously disagree with the FCC’s actions and will continue to advocate for essential net neutrality protections.

For more information, read the press release.
