A few Republican lawmakers are breaking with the party in order to oppose or express skepticism about tomorrow’s Federal Communications Commission vote to eliminate net neutrality rules.
Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) yesterday called on FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to delay the commission’s vote and give Congress time to “hold hearings on the net neutrality issue and to pass permanent open Internet legislation.”

“The preceding four Chairmen of the Federal Communications Commission, two Republicans and two Democrats, all took steps to uphold the basic principles that guaranteed a free and open Internet,” Coffman wrote in a letter to Pai.
